In the continuing saga of the roofing company who doesn’t seem to pay too much attention to details, here is the best photo I can get of the flashing job they did on the chimney. (I won’t walk on a second story roof, so I can’t get a better photo).
The general manager told me they use “coil stock” to do the flashing. I suggested to him that the top edge of the counter flashing should, at the very least, have some type of stiffener bend to it to give it strength, but he said this is how they do it. To me, this flashing is only as strong as the caulk joint at the top. Once the caulk fails, and it will, the flashing is rendered useless and leaking begins, no?
Also, I note there is no “apron” or similar flashing on the downside of the roof, either.
I’d like comments from roofing experts about what they can see from this photo. As always, I appreciate any comments or suggestions.
