Hardie Plank Siding/Brick Flashing?
I will soon be adding an addition to my home. We will effectively be enclosing a "dog ear" in the current house's footprint, squaring it off with the rest of the home. The house is constructed from solid brick (8" thick, but the addition will be constructed with wood studs and covered in Hardie Panel (Hardie's vertical siding. I am attaching a photo of the site for further clarification.
My question is, how do I handle the vertical seam between the addition, hardie plank, and the original home, brick. Clearly I cannot just but the Hardie Panel up to the brick as water could easily enter, but would flashing work in the application?
Any help would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks!
