randynavarro Posted November 18, 2009 Report Share Posted November 18, 2009 I see this often on chimneys in our region. Click to Enlarge 55.79 KB From the outside, the brick and mortar is reasonbly OK and it's flashed OK through the roof.

The mortar crown is cracked and been sealed with a some sort of goop - mortar crowns are typically cracked also. Point being, I suspect the water typically comes through the flue itself (when it was uncovered), the mortar crown, and seeping through the mortar. Is this a problem or is just wear and tear?
