Another critical area is where a roof line meets the side wall of the home for instance on an attached garage. This area requires “kick out diverter flashing”. Without the flashing in place water from the shingles can run down behind the exterior cladding and damage the wall.
The list goes on and on of the exterior claddings on the home that require flashing details to keep water out. From cement board siding, cultured stone, brick veneer, vinyl siding, EIFS and stucco, to the deck ledger board, flashing is critical to prevent water intrusion.
