yep and the dryflekt diverters are a darn good product to recommend when absence is observed regardless of the wall cladding type
stay well my friend!
Good information from DOE Build America Program. [size=7]
Chapter 14 is Field Guide for Installers. May be helpful in your training.
It sure would help if the ROOFERS would understand it is the first piece of step flashing THEY need to install.
We never see kick out here.I call them up every time and get flack for it constantly from the roofers about it.
When they quit saying it is a cladding problem and place the blame on the (roofers) maybe they will open their eyes a little.
What do the roofers say?

when inspectors become aware of a product that can prevent these damages what’s the harm in recommending their installation?
I know when one trys to tell the (cough cough) officials and builders and other trades things are wrong they do not take it very well.
Might be in the tone after a while.
Kinda like a self flashing window.
