Low slope roof


I couldn't see anything but a flat piece of flashing. Too small a picture and too old eyes! Makes sense to keep water from the sheathing or tyvek but not sure if the flashing has to get the water directed to the weep holes on the siding.

What picture are you looking at? Didn't you take it?

Pop the siding off on both sides of the windows and the first piece below them to see if the flashing is on correctly.

Sorry I was looking at the "flashing detail" link you sent. There is 4" wide tape covering the nailing flange. Tyvek on top of the tape, j channel on top of that. And siding into the j channel no flashing was installed.

My pix should fill 1/2 your screen. Did you click of them? They are thumbnails and each one opens a larger pic in another window so you can views lots of them at once and switch back and forth.

Your description of what you have sounds all wrong.

Now I see what your talking about. That does seem like the correct way to do it, not my way! Sounds like a weekend drive to Milwaukee! Do you install flashing above the window also, with a lip on far enough so it extends beyond front edge of the window.

Yes I do! Tops are problematic depending on the siding joints and I sometimes have to get creative. The short version is that I end up with a piece that complately covers the J channel on top and goes under the siding above it.
Take some time and browse all those 'Window' pages. They should be able to assist you.
