It depends on where the OP lives somewhat, because the joint between the sill and foundation is certainly susceptable to leakage. If located in a high freeze-thaw region, any excess moisture migration behind the stone is never good. Add in the fact that both types of sill mentioned (by me) so far are extremely absorbent, and draw the moisture from the mortar out quickly during installation, and a hairline cracks are bound to exist in the joint.

I live in southwest Virginia. We don't get huge freezing spells here but it does freeze once in a while

Stone veneer meets siding...flashing?


I've been looking around for flashing and was wondering what size you all think. I would like to get some flashing or trim coil in a clay color to match our trim but most if it is 24" wide. I was thinking i needed it 6 or 8" wide. The only thing I can find with that width is aluminum or galvanized steel with a mill finish. Not very attractive if you ask me....I did find some vinyl flashing with the right width and color but Is that a no-no for my type of application? Any feedback would be appreciative

That's pretty close to what I was thinking of doing. .....I was just reading on how to use a sheet metal brake.... I've heard the term "painted aluminum" in some research I was doing but haven't seen to much about it. I was looking for flashing or trim coil that matches my trim. Is that the same thing or something different?

Nice picture but you are better of using limestone instead of brick for the cap.
Limestone cap has a grove on the underside preventing water from running down the wall.

Ask any bricklayer and he will tell you the same thing.

They don't always have a drip-edge sawed into them. As a matter of fact, it's quite rare to see that hear in residential sills. Grindign his own in certainly wouldn't hurt anything though.

That's a little bit different scenario. That's a base flashing at the brickledge with "Quadra-vents" for the weep holes. He won't really need either in this situation, seeing as it's thin veneer.
