Counter flashing chimney flashings
We first removed the existing caulking that was set AGAINST the bricks, and instead used a skill saw with a diamond blade to cut a groove into the grout 3/4 quarter of an inch, after which we INSERTED the new L flashing in this cut groove or grout line.. So my New Flashing is not set Against the brick but Instead inserted into the grout a half inch, THEN CAULKED.
It’s a better system but I don’t believe I explained this well judging from other comments. Live and learn, after 580 more video’s I am better at explaining the details.
Howdy everyone, in this video we show you how to properly counter flash a chimney area. Now, the issue with this chimney wasn’t that it currently leaked. The previous guys did an ok job of making it water tight, however there is a superior system. The flashing they used was only set against the bricks and caulked; it was not inset into the system.
For me it seems a common sense issue that a flashing simply laid against a brick surface and caulked well, will not last as long as one embedded over and on top of the brick by at least ½ to ¾ inch then sealed properly. However folks are welcome to do as they choose
It’s definitely technical stuff.
