Chimney flashing: cut in?
More on my roof estimates...
My current chimney flashing is just up against my chimney without the top edge being folded into a cut in the mortar.
In home improvment books, it always shows the flashing work being done by cutting a thin groove in the side of the chimney and tucking the top edge of flashing into that groove.
My estimator said that they will install all new flashing, but when I asked him if they tuck it into the brick work, he said that they do that only if there is an existing groove for that.
There isn't one on my chimney, but it sure seems like a good idea, right? Is there a solid way to flash the chimney without that technique?
