Z-flashing is ugly

Recommended Posts

At least they used Z flashing. The practice around here seemed to be to use a horizontal 1 X 4 or 1 x 6 in lieu of Z flashing. Years later when the siding begins to show rot damage above the horizontal band, the original band (usually rot resistant cedar) is simply replaced with the next larger size piece of spruce or yellow pine from one of the big box stores. With lots of sloppily applied cheap caulk.

Stupid.

See a lot of town homes built in the late 70's here in Maryland like Kevin stated, no flashing, just bigger and bigger trim boards with huge amounts of cheap caulk. Soon as you see the wood paneling on the outside, you know you have issues.
