One year old. Not a single weep anywhere. A head flashing above the trim at that huge window wall but nothing above the steel ledger that's holding up that veneer above the window. No metal or vinyl through-wall flashings; heavy black felt - probably 90 minute - hanging out of the joint between the veneer and the foundation wall. About the only saving grace - it's on the east side of the house.

About half the houses on this street have some degree of veneer and all of them look the same.

I wonder if there's a way to get rich making book on how many years it takes something like this to become an issue? Wanna start a pool? I'll be dealer and hold the money. Bwahahahahaha!
