New way to step flash a side wall. just turn the shingles up and tar them up real good. Works all the time, no need for metal flashing.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


What’s the rule of thumb for that?

3”? Full tab?

Do you add sealant as you go, or wait till it rains?

I'll bet dollar to a donut, that was done because of persistent leak - caused by rain bouncing from roof thru the gable vent.

I have seen gable vents leak with a driving sideways rain , looked at two different houses this past year where that was the case.

On this one I wonder it the one part of the house was added on to covering the brick there for no flashing was ever installed.

A lot of the “ roofers” around here don’t cut the counter flashing into the mortar joints any more , they just glue it down with sealant

You forgot this:

As the HO, Make sure to log into CT and ask best practices for priming your moldy and sagging ceiling before you paint it.

Yep, that's why we left enough space for it to grow a bit, even though it's fully mature, There is about 4 1/2"-5" between the tree and framing. The decking will be about 1 1/2" away from the tree and another couple of inches away from framing so that it can be cut back in the years to come. It's not our first rodeo.
