The Chimney had a Build
Up of Caulk & Tar, but
no Flashing onto the
Roof Shingles.

A Build Up means at some
point it was leaking and
someone put some more
Caulk or Tar on it. It will
Leak again.


The Correct Way to Repair this is with Counter Flashing
First we sawcut the Chimney about 1" and clean off the old Build Up. Then we install a Custom
Made Aluminum Counter Flashing. The top edge goes into the sawcut and is sealed. The ends
are Pop Riveted together and the bottom edge secured with Neo-Screws.
