backward flashing
water funnel
I have to say something about backward flashing. Maybe the people that did this will read what I have to say and stop doing it.
This flashing is angled back toward the house, forming a water trough. This is on the hardy siding gable on the addition we are working on.
Where does the water go ? The water runs off the higher trough to the lower trough and into the gap in between. This water funnel is over the stucco and directly over a window.
This isn't home improvement, this is home destruction.
