    FaILING CHIMney flashing causes leaks and further deterioration Here, you can see where the termination bar was used to flash this chimney area.  The fasteners are beginning to loosen, causing movement and sealant failure.  There does not appear to be a reinforced perimeter strip at the lower change of plane, allowing more movement and trampolining in this area, making it much more likely to move or tear.  This area appears to have some leaking issues.
