Head flashing detail


Recommended Posts

Finned vinyl windows use flashing tape so you won't see the flashing during an inspection.

Not necessarily true.

Out here, lots of builders use the bituthene around three sides and then use metal head flashings along the top of the window. If they're installing Hardiplank they are required to do so by the manufacturer.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

Right.

This would be a typical vinyl siding install.

Drawing shows the side flashing installed over the window flange but I've seen some that show the side flashing installed under the window flange. Chk out the stucco article in the October issue of JLC. By Gene Summy.

There doesn't seem to be a clear industry consensus.
