Leak On Chimney


I have a pretty bad water leak on the roof next to a chimney I think its coming from the back side of the stack where the builder has nailed 1x6 lap & gap cedar to fix the leak years ago from what I was told, the roof looks good it 4 years old so I am pretty sure its the stack. Dose any one have a better Idea than this, hopefully my picture uploads so you can see what I am saying I was thinking of a solid flashing on this hmmmmm help me here lol. Thanks

Re: Leak On Chimney


no picture-It sounds like you mean heat flue pipe,ecause you mention the stack---i usually will install tri-polymer sealant under the roof flange to prevent wind driven rain,also make sure the collar is securely pressed to the roof flashing and the collar is sealed
