This is better information that you will see most professional roofers do, so I applaud you for this. My main work is replacing gutters, but I have done around 100 chimney flashing jobs for clients over the last 17 years. My early work may not have been so good, but I have gotten a lot better and show on my web site a better way to flash a chimney than this. I found a few details that would result in poor information to the DIY. First off they should not use steel flashing that will not last as long as the roofing. They should never use a caulk to set the counter flashing. It does not stick well and has not strength to support the tonnage of bricks above this flashing. The saddle should be larger with wider exit points for the water and debris to drain out of this pan. It also could be made a lot more seamlessly. I show example of this at: http://copper-by-design.com/cc/cf.htm
