    Default Chimney

    I do not like the placement of the chimney. Cricket is in place but it does not have proper slope.
    This is a new home.

    Crappy wood siding and inadequate clearance from roof covering. So they landed the chimney right in the middle of a ridge. That's better than in the middle of a valley, right? Is it getting worser by the year or only my imagination?

    There is not much of a roof plane above that chimney seeing as how it looks like it is just beneath the hip/ ridge, so not much water will shed to it. If the trim and siding were installed with proper clearances and flashing was done right, I probably would not be concerned.
