    I'm about to install vinyl siding on my house and wasn't sure how to install it around my chimney. It looks fairly easy but is there a certain technique to keeping water from getting behind the vinyl next to the chimney? Is this even going to be an issue. Will I need to flash around it or do I need to just rely on caulking, if so whats the best method?

    Thanks

    Hello StevenC:
    You may want to lay a bead of silicone caulk next to the chimney and seat the J-channel in that for a waterproof seal.
