Step Flashing Question.


My trade is carpentry and remodeling but flashing to brick is not my thing .
Not at all! Is there a formula or technique for installing step flashing and counterflashing to a shingle to brick wall? I have installed a porch addition with a 12-3 roof, three tab shingle and I am having some difficulty figuring out the cuts to make to give it that consistent step look on this shallow roof to the brick mortar joints. I have run the flashing under each shingle and up the brick about 4" parellel to the roof and now I am stuck. I can't figure out the counterflashing spacing or shape( I assume that is the correct name for the permanent flashing that is imbedded in the mortar joints). Any help would be appreciated. Joe.

Re: Step Flashing Question.


Nice pic to explain flashing positioning .
That was not hard at all...but...
I feel pretty stupid here...
it does not explain the method of keeping the flashing to mortar joint a consistant look. Is it as simple as making sure the exposed base flashing is the same throughout and cut the metal to make it appear consistant? Am I not explaining my question clearly? Duh on me. Thanks. Joe.

Re: Step Flashing Question.


I am trying to show you with photos, it sounds like you have the steps in already, you just need the counter, you can do it like this photo, or you can cut into brick and use long pieces of counter simply overlapping the step flashing. G
