North Star Construction Case Studies: Chimney Counter Flashing

Monday, July 8th, 2019 by Micaela Romero

Challenge

During removal of the existing roof, we saw that the metal counter flashing was starting to pull away from the brick. As you can see in the picture, once we removed the multiple layers of roofing we discovered that the mortar was brittle as well. In addition, the old counter flashing was sealed with lots of sealant,so in my experience, this has been an ongoing issue. 

Solution

Counter flashing was replaced to create a proper seal for the chimney and base flashing.
