is there a proper way to cap an unused chimney?
Can you use slate to cover a 4 flue chimney?

Or should sheet copper be used to cover the top of the chimney. Is this better than slate? Can the copper be glued to the top layer of brick?

Also what is the proper material to seal flashing to brick. I think Mr. Jenkins recommends some type of clear caulking that is supposed to last and not crack open after a season or two of hot and cold.
