I just had a metal roof put on a remote lake cabin and got my first look at it a couple days ago. I'm concerned about the method used by the contractor to deal with sealing around three chimneys. It looks like what he did was to bend the metal on the "uphill" side of the chimney, so there is a crevasse in which water will stand, rather than having it flow downhill to the caulking he has liberally slathered around the base of the chimney. It looks sketchy. (I'd like to send you photos so you can see what I'm talking about.) I'm wondering if this is normal and, if not, whether you can tell me how this should have been done so I can talk to the contractor and/or find someone to repair it. Thanks.

If you would like to send me pictures at [email protected], I will review them and also send you some pictures of what I consider the best way to flash around a chimney.
