I have a newly installed metal roof which comes into contact with an old masonry chimney. We're having great probelms stopping water seeping down between the metal and the chimney, despite flashing. Any suggestions as to sealants or gaskets? my roofer's latest idea is to coat the whole seam with black roofing tar (unslightly) and then to paint it all silver. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

My suggestion is to re-flash the chimney and, this time, make a saw cut into the chimney, all the way around, 1/2" deep, 6 - 8" above and parallel to the roof line. The flashing should be bent to go into this saw cut and then sealed. Also, obtain instructions from the roofing manufacturer before proceeding.

You need a Butyl based caulking or better yet a sealant tape to sadwich between the metal roofing and flashing.
