We have water dripping down our chimney where a pan is needed to prevent flooding in our den. We do not have a cap on our fireplace chimney or our boiler chimney. We have gotten many quotes from chimney repairs co's - all giving different opinions, but what has been said is we need new crowns, pointing, waterproofing the brick and one said a new liner. The last guy said just do caps first and not all the other things because it may not be necessary. We need a knowlegable unbiased opinion on what would most likely be causing the water flowing down, before we go ahead with all this work.

Cant hurt to simply go with the Chimney Cap 1st, they are inexpensive and easy to install but they will not totally stop the rain from entering. I have installed one and because of heavy wind off the lake we live on I still get water/rain in the Chimney.

I posted a question as well asking what else I could do.
