Chimney flashing is designed to repel water that hits the chimney, then while traveling down the chimney; it disperses the water onto the shingles and into your gutters. Therefore it is important to ensure that any chimney flashing repair is completed quickly.
You can spot leaking chimney flashing by noticing stained ceilings, the most common sign of flashing not doing its job properly. You should complete your chimney flashing repair if it is missing, rusted through, falling out, attacked by animals or completely covered with roofing tar. Many chimney companies will cover the flashing with roofing tar, a typical short term chimney flashing repair that's sure to be hiding bigger problems.
Completing chimney flashing repairs in this manner will not allow the flashing to breath and could be creating future problems you will not physically see, until it's too late!
