I took pictures of the flashing around the chimney the guy did when he replaced a roof for me on an income property few years back.

First, he cut off the properly installed lead sheeting embedded into the mortar.

Next, he put standard 6x6 step flashing on each course.
Finally, he built this big fancy box like thing, draped it over all the step flashing, then sil-caulked it to the bricks.

In a few years, if I'm still alive, I'll get called to offer advice on the best way to handle tht chimney leaking like a meteor crashed thru the roof.

But Gawd Dang - you stand back and look, and its just gotta work - look at the size of that stuff!

No contract, no down payment. I'm urging her to have a reputable company redo it and pay them instead.

I'm going to assume whoever installed that doesn't have teeth. Otherwise I would tell you to knock their teeth out.

What I'm am doing differently is #1 install a trim board along the roof that the siding sits on, primed and painted on all sides before install. #2, space it up 1/2" so there isn't direct contact with the roofing. #3, if I had been dumb enough to do it this way, I would have at least painted the cut ends to help prevent the wicking. This may not have been a big deal if it was 30year old siding, but it was just replaced about 8-9 years ago and now it's falling off the house. Sucks for the HO, but it's good for me, I get weary of following people who claim to know how to do things.

Is it even better if it's a $900 door? This one is better than most, we had to cut loose and drop the doors to fix.

Yeah, it's pretty atrocious. Almost seems like they didn't adjust the saw from doing hardwood to laminate

Want me to take some more photos when I go back?

Just crank up a humidifier to 90%. It will bring all that right back tight again.
