Flashing at Structural Floors

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a drawing from a reputable source detailing flashing/weeps at structural floors?

IRC 1405.4.2 Masonry. Flashing and weep holes in anchored

veneer shall be located in the first course of masonry above

finished ground level above the foundation wall or slab, and

other points of support, including structural floors, shelf

angles and lintels where anchored veneers are designed in

accordance with Section 1405.6.

Not sure if this helps, but figure 1 references this, and the article itself discusses aesthetic considerations of second and higher floor flashings. Detailed drawings on page 2 of 3.

Thanks all. I still don't see any specific drawings relating directly to flashing details at a floor intersection for a wood frame home with brick veneer.

I’m thinking it is the same as near the base of the wall where flashing might be used. This page shows a through-wall flashing details adjacent to floor joists. By the text, it looks to me that the flashing method is to be repeated at each floor level.

Figs. 2, 5 & 8 present examples that may apply.
