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: http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...commendations/

Solar-driven moisture: http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...n-brick-veneer

Roof, if interested: http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...uth-assemblies

Use foam board, taped at seams, air-tight; canned foam under/over to air seal; Fig. 11, and pp.10- notice air leakage; http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...apor-retarders

Stop the air leakage; http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...wall-approach/

Foil-faced f.b., housewrap location, etc., pp.14,19; http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...ting-sheathing

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


If any ads are present below my answer or words underlined/colored, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed/linked to, they are there without my consent.
WELCOME to the forums, if I forgot to say it!

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
