Fixing a leaky chimney down at UNL today

Fixing a leaky chimney with some new copper flashing, from bob at firestone sheet metal. First we measured where our new flashing would go and began by taking a grinder with a diamond blade to cut that line out. Then we slid our new flashing into the grove, after that we took our drill with a masonry drill bit and drilled hole every 16 inches and then tapped new lead hit anchors into the wall to fasten the flashing. After that we ran a small bead of sealant along the top of the flashing to create and extra gasket for water to run off of.
