    Default a little more tar and that sucker won't leak

    Saw this yesterday and thought I would share. I ask my self to what extent will builders go to just to screw up. This was for a gas log fireplace put in when the house was built.

    No leaks noted on ceiling around brick fireplace, the room the fireplace is in has a cathedral ceiling and as much as I wanted to get back to the area where the chimney pipe goes through the roof I could not safely. The buyer was there and I noted my concerns.

    My own personal feeling is not will it leak but when.

    I would say your personal feelings are correct.

    William,

    That is how the architect probably designed it and the builder built it per the prints.

    Design flaw.

    Placing a chimney in a valley is never a good idea.
