Forum Title: Brick Flashing Work
I re-flashed this brick wall a while back. On the initial phone call to the office, the lady said she had ?just a little small leak? over the front porch. Turned out the rocket scientists that did the original flashing work left like a 6 inch piece of flashing out completely just underneath that gutter elbow from the upper roof. :woohoo: And you know it had to be OSB decking. I started tearing off the shingles near even with the bottom of the valley above and when i got to that elbow where the flashing was MIA That's where the rot started. The rot did not stop until near the bottom so all the decking from the bottom up passed the gutter elbow had to come out and be replaced. They also had just 4◊4 hemmed wall flashing installed with no cut made in the brick ( no counter flashing ) and just caulked at the top with sillycone.
