Why Do It the Easy Way?

Chimney flashing leaking? Simply cut 3-inch PVC in half, connect together at the base of the chimney, attach vinyl siding to the chimney, and caulk around the top of the vinyl siding. The water will then flow into the chimney "gutter" you've created, around the back of the chimney, through a small drain hole in the side wall, and out the soffit. Much easier than fixing the flashing on the roof!
