Default Re-Leading Chimney

Any helpful Tips/Tricks greatly appreciated - i am in process of replacing a new roof on an old house - the chimney is basically falling apart - i need to re-lead the chimney (there is none there)..
Thank you ahead of time for youre thoughts..

If the chimney is in disrepair, it first needs tuck pointing before any flashing is installed.

And if it needs a lining this is not a DIY job. Call a sweep to come take a look at it, that or have the house burn down.
