The house is about 10 years old. The furnace and gas chimneys (both are metal) make their way through the attic and then though the roof.
During rains, droplets of water trickle down the furnace and fireplace chimneys from the point where they exit the roof.
We are assuming that some sort of caulking is defective and needs to be replaced.
1. Could their be any other solution other than defective caulking? A seal perhaps?
2. What type of caulking is the correct one? Home Depot/Lowes has a profusion of caulking types and am not sure which is the right one. Any specific brand/type recommendation is welcome.
3. Can this task be accomplished from inside the house (say attic) or would it need to visit the roof top?
4. Would a speciality contractor (roofer, hvac?) be needed to solve this issue or would a general handyman be able to fix this?
Thanks for your time.
