Chimney Questions and Answers

Building a cricket (or saddle) on a chimney

When building a cricket on a chimney, do the edges of the cricket go all the way to the edge of the chimney or are they set back from the edge to allow for flashing? If set back, how far?

The cricket may be built either way I run mine out to the edge of the chimney to ensure that when the flashing is added the water is run well away.

You can use either a type S mortar (1 part portland 1/2 part lime 4 1/2 sand)or a type N ( 1 part portland 1 part lime 6 parts sand). You can buy this in bags by type and just add sand. Check the rest of the chimney for cracks inside and out but it will most likely be just the top and should be simple to replace.
