|This is what weep screeds are made for, foundation
slabs. If water runs down the wall and sits on the
concrete slab, the water can rot the plate, the horizontal
2 x 4 at the bottom.
The weep screed overlaps the slab, preventing rot
to the plate. Also weep holes at the bottom allow
water to drain out of the stucco. Later, the weep
screed will be overlapped with tarpaper to prevent water from running behind the weep.
|We put on a
counter flashing over the step flashing. Note the kick out
flashing we put
on over the trim.
celotex is left in place. Rotted plywood is replaced with
trick: The studs are marked when we
put on the tarpaper by nailing every stud.
That way, we don't miss the stud when we nail on the lath.
|Roof is covered with
plastic and metal stop (casing bead) is nailed overlapping
on the dormers.
|2 layers of
tarpaper are put on overlapping the weep. Here,
self-furring metal lath is put on.
