Well, we are getting an absolute deluge of rain while I type this. Most I have seen come down at once in a long long time. Suffice it to say, I now have water coming into at least 2 places, maybe more....... I have a pellet insert in a brick frireplace that is on the end of the house, probably 35 to 40 years old at least. Leak # 1: Rain is dripping pretty steadily into the firebox behind the insert (I can see it when I open the side access door on the stove.) Without being able to see the flue area I am guessing it is coming straight down from the crown area? I have one of those cages on top of the chimney to keep the birds out Leak # 2: water is slowly running down the brick face of the mantel area next to the stove. When it stops pouring, do you guys suspect flashing around the chimney? Leaky Crown? Both or something else? Thanks All!
