We run into chimney leaks all the time. Many of the older homes in Tallahassee may still have non functioning chimneys in place. These brick chimneys were used as part of the oil burning furnace systems.  Many homes have since converted to alternative heating/cooling leaving the chimney as a source for potential roof leaks (chimney leaks).

Be sure and consider removing as many roof penetrations as possible.  Fewer accessories means fewer potential leak hazards.

This particular new roof installation is near the Jackson Bluff Road area (which is mostly investment properties).

When we removed this chimney, the chimney flashing was completely rusted.  Rusted flashing means chimney leaks! Metal flashing was just not made to endure 50-70 years of abuse!
