Roofing nails should probably do the trick for you

i don't get the "six inches above the ledger" part ...

kinda like this pic I found on google. # 6 is the flashing, but I'd use the peel n' stick between them.






you'd nail the flashing to the wall and not the ledger.

as for the ledger attached to concrete, is this your foundation wall, below your framing and cladding?

there is no framing, the house addition is build with large brick elements (kind of like cinder blocs but clay, and then has cement over it). but the ledge below the double sliding door is all solid concrete, 82" wide, about 18" deep, 2.5' high, i poured it a few months ago and rebared the crap out of it. dude, it's rock solid, a mortar attack couldn't harm it. on the house side, the deck mostly rests on it and then two small ledgers on both side that go into the legacy addition wall (i broke holes on the hollow elements and filled them with mortar and then epoxied the bolts in, it is also rock solid).

will post some later. but the bottom line is if a ledger is affixed on a concrete wall, it does not need flashing, true or false?

generally, true if there is nothing other than concrete behind the ledger
