If the outside is made of red brick you can put flagstone over it. Red brick has a rough texture so the flagstone should adhere very well.
The sealer needs redone fixed before you cover it up. Parging/ Waterproofing when not applied correctly, allows water to become trapped between the parge coat and the wall which can make the very problem you were hoping to prevent even worse. Badly done parging contributes to moisture damage and a type of deterioration of concrete known as spalling.Spalling occurs when water enters brick, natural stone, or concrete and forces the surface of the masonry to pop out, peel off, or flake off..it’s not recommended to use the chimney until the full impact of the spalling has been determined. Gaps in the chimney structure that allow water to penetrate could also allow dangerous carbon monoxide fumes to enter the living area of the home during use. Your chimney repair expert will let you know when the chimney is safe for use. Sometimes salt also pushes outward from the inside and causes spalling. It's fairly simple to spot spalling, since bits of masonry fall from the chimney.it needs to be inspected and repaired by a professional chimney specialist as soon as possible
You could put any kind of stone on it. You can also frame it in and side it with what ever your house is sided in.
Here are some ways to do this! Good luck.
