I like the weepholes and through-wall flashing.

That's how the building department insists it be done, but the unsightliness of it drives me nuts. [:-weepn]

(We always used to install that very flashing in conjunction with weeps, but we held it back about a 1/4" from the face of the bed joint, which I always thought looked far better and accomplished the same thing. Apparently, it's become a lack of trust issue between builders and inspection departments - sad..)

The flashing is required to extend to the exterior. Holding it back 1/4" does not acheive the same thing.

That's what I hear, I'm just not sure I buy it. Even when it comes all the way through, it still has a ton of material on it - a lot of compression. So, I'm not able to imagine an appreciable difference - splitting hairs, IMHO. [:-wiltel]

Believe it or not, the 1/4" deal used to be the standard detail even in government work - schools, prisons, etc. This hanging it all out deal is relatively new around her.

It's a personal thing. I just don't like it - ugly...

It doesn't have to hang out. It just has to come to the surface.

OK, I can live with that. I just invision Thomas Jefferson coming back to ask, "What's that?" [:-tophat]
