Ledger Flashing


Hello, any tips on building and installing a ledger board flashing? I have a bending brake and a roll of 2 foot wide aluminum. Do I put the flashing on before hanging joists or after?? I'm desperate for advice...thank you in advance. Bryan D

As mentioned, you want to use either: COPPER or Heavily galvanized Steel sheets for flashing.
Discussion: http://www.oldhouseweb.com/stories/Detailed/14587.shtml

I recommend using copper DECK flashing (not to be confused with heavier gauge - expensive - rolls of copper roof flashing)

Example: http://www.yorkmfg.com/yorkShield106pt.asp

You don't need a brake to bend this type of flashing, as it is very pliable. It also has a soft polypropylene backing.

In this article, instead of using roofing felt as described, I suggest using a moisture membrane (like Grace Ice & Water shield):

More information on how to layer flashing with a moisture membrane, see this link:
