Shingle Weaving Around Chimney


chimney was done last week before the roofing. They said the roofer would weave the new shingles into the lead surrounding the chimney. This to me does not look correct. Seems to me I will have water damage? Does this look correct to anyone?

It wasn't a roofer that put those shingles up there. Are you sure the company had 'roofing' in it's name?
That's a disaster.

O/P said he's having new shingles installed, not that they have been installed.

Shingle Weaving Around Chimney


The chimney guy left the lead like that...roofers were here 3 days later.Should the lead be totally covered with the shingles?
These roof shingles are new. IKO Cambridge architectural.Roof was 40 square, about 100 sheets of 7/16 too. Judging from the comments should I have other concerns other than the chimney flashing?

I would be concerned about the nailing, pipe collars, starters, lack of ridge venting, and other issues after seeing that mess.

If that is what he left visible, what is invisible.

If this is what they present as a topical installation I would be very curious to see whats hidden under,,such as nail pattern,felt installation,decking installation,decking fasteners,offset,length of fasteners used.And my list would go on for days if I was the recipient of that mess.

But all that lead you could use for fishing weights or even bullets,,,,Bullets ??? Hmmm..

Even if that flashing is correct (and it's not) would you want that ugly looking mess on your roof? Yikes.

Shingle Weaving Around Chimney


I'm not a roofer or a brick mason.. but if that chimney was a new build, wouldn't it be the brick masons job to install the counter flashing in the mortar, and then the roofers job to install the step flashing behind that? Is that not the right way? In new construction would the roofer be up there cutting grooves to install the counter? No clue, here in phoenix fireplaces aren't that common, especially brick.

Copperclad, there is no CF required on that chimney. The lead is weaved into the shingles like step flashing and that is all that is required. It's old-school and lasts forever done properly. The masons did a very nice job from the looks. It just needs an experienced roofer to properly finish it and the HO will have a very sound detail he will not have to ever worry about.

The problem is the roofers dropped the ball. Odds are they had no clue what they were looking at and I'm going to bet there is step flashing hidden underneath that lead that should not have been installed.

The only thing keeping that from leaking right now is that it is at the ridge and the backpan lead drapes over it.

many masons don't flash their own work on chimneys around here

usually see a roofer or a sider cutting in the counter
