If a chimney needs rebuilding who do I look for? A roofer or a stone mason?
My home is 59 years old and has a leak somewhere around the chimney that has been difficult to locate and stop permanently. It has cracks in the mortar on the side and top crown as well as some missing mortar. The flashing has been "fixed" with tar or roof caulk several times. Is it normal to need a removal and replacement of the chimney mortar after some period of time?
