What's Your Call?

This chimney is wider than 30 inches. Is the lack of a cricket a defective condition?

a. No, there is insufficient space for cricket installation without routing drainage under the cap shingles.

b. Yes, good building practice requires that a cricket be installed on any chimney 30 inches wide or wider in the direction parallel to the ridge.
