Mark Anderson where are you;-)


The first picture, in and of itself, is active moisture. It may be slight but it’s enough to cause the “fungal growth”.

The second picture tells me that they either didn’t or don’t have a raincap on the chimney (or else it’s another kind of structural moisture intrusion).

He’s only kidding Mark.:roll:

Hmm I believe I have seen that pic on “This Old House”

Just my 2cents
