Fixing water in buildings doesn’t make for very pretty pictures. Here are some progress shots from a recent job.
Photo above shows a fairly recent repair to the chimney.
Key to fixing water problems is ensuring that there’s no opportunity for water to pool against the building, for instance, at chimneys.
New flashing is kerfed into the chimney and caulked. Chimney still needs a cap – did I mention it’s a progress shot? The shingle color match is probably a little bit better than the original repair, so that’s kind of a nice perk.
