Siding To Brick Wainscoting


I see it fairly often on a brick wainscoting where the siding is sitting on a piece of wood cut at an angle, or a water table and the flashing is under the wood water table. Should there also be, or instead of, flashing behind the siding on top of the water table? Or just no water table at all?

**Edited to add - It may have to have the wood water table if the siding isn't thick enough to reach the brick.**

Any case, I may be replacing the rotted wood and siding in such a scenario, thing is he probably wants to replace just the bad stuff and not all of it.

Below is a picture of one of the worst spots, first thing I will do is cut out all of Einstein's work. But in a case where all of it had to be replaced, how would you do it?

How would you do it if just sections needed replacing? (which will probably be the case here)

The brick veneer would need base through wall flashing/weeps as well below the brick sill. Anything on top of that gets flashed over the sill. I wouldn't butt the siding tight...leave an airspace/capillary break to thwart off rot.

Ideally yes, but that brick was put up in the 40's and I am not going to take off 2 or 3 rows of brick to flash it. I believe I will do something like my drawing below unless anyone has a better idea.

Sorry, I thought you meant from scratch...your retrofit looks fine.

Cool, thanks. I will try to talk him into doing it all, it is a garage/shop. Even the stuff that isn't rotted yet is probably well on the way with that silicone sealing the wood to brick holding water in (Hence "Einstein" in my first picture lol)
