Q:

I have water leaking from my chimney, through the flue, and into my basement.  This has happened twice - both times we had rain and heavy winds. The first time I had about 1-2 gallons leak in, whereas last week i had only about 1/2 gallon.  Any idea what's causing this - and a possible solution?  After the first incident, a chimney company came and checked out the flashing and chimney.  They said the flashing was fine, and they did some repointing near the top  - but then water got in again last week.
