Have a few questions: flashing windows and doors and brick ledge

Rather than start another thread in "Insulation", I'll start answering here. Others will chime in anytime on either subject. Basics on vapor barrier/retarder not required in Zone 3:

Solar-driven moisture:

Roof, if interested:

Use foam board, taped at seams, air-tight; canned foam under/over to air seal; Fig. 11, and pp.10- notice air leakage;

Stop the air leakage;

Foil-faced f.b., housewrap location, etc., pp.14,19;

P.S. Some of the links are redundant but add a little bit differently. You wanted an "education", LOL.

Clothes taking longer to dry?
Clean the dryer screen in HOT water if using fabric softener sheets.
They leave a residue that impedes air-flow, costing you money.
Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!

Thank you for posting the links.

I have seen a few of the links, but several of them were new sources of information for me.

This information will help me make sure these assemblies are correct before the brick veneer is applied.

Take care
