We purchased our home in 2004(built in 1986). It is a brick front colonial. The chimney leaked a lot and we tried many repairs, including a new cap, sealing and re-roofing. The bricks were spalling and in despair, we had the chimney demolished and rebuilt. The underlay was replaced, new siding and gutters added, plus a new larger chimney cap. Our chimney is still leaking after having been rebuilt 5 years ago. The mason and contractor have tried EVERYTHING. They are completely stymied. The water seems to come down the inside wall. From time to time we have many gallons of water. We have a new cricket and flashing and the contractor has caulked every crevice and the mason has sealed the chimney.
We are so frustrated and wonder if anyone has any suggestions. Thank you.
