Hi - Flashing around the chimney became unattached due to spalling
bricks and water leaked into the attic. If those bricks aren't fixed &
the flashing is
again 'sealed' to that same brick, how does it remain sealed with the
possibility of the brick continuing to fall apart?
Thanks for your help!
I've a friend with the same problem...You have two choices - patch the
bricks over with mortal and butt the flashing up against the mortar
layer, or replace the dang chimney.
My friend has one messed up/spalling chimney that has been mortared
over years ago and it's fine. Other one got replaced and it's fine
Might depend on how long you intend to stay in the house and what your
cashflow is. SHort stay, low cash = mortar over it.
