If I am building new, victor or the like goes 3” below and 6” above the ledger board before the house wrap. Ledger goes on. vicor then starts 6” above ledger, down to ledger and folds over. House wrap goes over that. I would get as close as you can to that.

What type of flashing would be ideal with pressure treated wood?



What is victor/vicor?
Sorry. Thanks auto correct. It is a Grace tape product used as flashing. Personally I like the Georgia pacific force field brand which is way more flexible for making sill flashings. Typar is like the Lowe’s or HD brand. All the same idea. And my personal hard learned warning to all is…..if it is hot out, when you pull the backing off, it will stick to whatever it touches pretty much instantly, not the least of which is itself….and once it sticks to itself it is NOT pulling apart…..ever.
