I’m having a leak problem around my chimney (where the chimney goes through the roof in my attic). I had the flashing replaced (copper) and it still leaked. Subsequently I had a Mason inspect the chimney. He did some minor re-pointing and applied water resistant silicon. However, he said the chimney and cap were in good shape (the home is only 15 years old). I had a different carpenter/roofer take another look at the flashing and they noted some areas on the copper flashing that should have been soldered, but had not been. They did the soldering and a couple days later we had 8 hours of heavy rain. The good news is the leaking was much less then previously experienced, but the bad news is there was still some leaking. Basically a few beads of water forming on the north side of the house at the area where chimney goes out of the attic and streaming down. Not heavy, but steady.
I this point I don’t know if it is still a problem with the flashing or if it is saturating through the bricks. The new counter flashing goes up from the roof about three feet so if its saturation, the water really has to travel quite far. This is quite frustrating.
I thought I’d reach out to see if anyone has any thoughts/suggestions. Thank you. I have attached a photo.
