Deck ledger boards are a common source of water infiltration, and it can be years before you discover the damage caused by water finding its way behind the ledger and into your home. The process below may seem a little excessive, but the extra time spent following these steps may save you thousands of dollars in repairs. Of course make sure the local building official approves.
Install house wrap on the wall several inches higher than where the top of the ledger board will be.
Install a Z-flashing approved for pressure-treated lumber where the bottom of the ledger will be.
Cover the top of the Z-flashing with house wrap tape.
Fasten the ledger board over the Z-flashing.
Install flashing approved for pressure-treated lumber on top of the ledger.
Cover the top of the flashing with window/door flashing tape.
Install house wrap over the flashing.
Fasten the house wrap to the wall with house wrap tape.
Install the siding…finally!

Are you selling your home in the off-season? Be sure to skip the holiday decorations as they can deter some buyers, and keep your home warm during showings! Nothing will rush a potential buyer like a cold house!
Slow night tonight @ottcitywood so I'm making use of their shop. I love this old victorian style millwork. Most people just take it off/let it rot on their houses, but @mpedlar24 is having it restored. #preservation#conservation#restoration
There is a new public art installation in Rochester, MN and the TimeLapseCameras.com team had our cameras rolling. Four Brinno TLC 200 Pro cameras have been on-site since Monday, capturing every aspect of the delivery and installation. Today was a big day with the delivery wrap removal and unveiling. There is a little more work to be done and we hope to release a finished video next week. Consider time lapse for your next project, document the action and share your accomplishment. We are here to assist you from camera set-up to final editing.
