This metal roof and flashing does not look correctly installed. This is a new construction in West Texas. Can someone recommend a reference to look this up or have advice on writing this deficiency up? Missing counterflashing and kick-out flashing, termination on stucco
Well, flashing must be designed to prevent water entry. That is the counter flashing. I would prefer it be tucked. It also does not appear to have sealant which would be the minimum requirement in my mind. I would call it substandard.
Yes, as Brian stated above, there should be a counter flashing installed to prevent water intrusion behind the roof covering material and eventually causing issues to the wall/roof structure.
I would call it a defect.
Personally, I think ya’ll overthinking this. This is a visual cosmetic feature only. What exactly do you feel is being protected? The exterior envelope of the home is intact. Rain is gonna hit the underside of that ‘roof’ no matter what you do. It’s a non-issue!!
From here I don’t see any type of coping or flashing at the top of the wall. It appears to be a parapet since there is no visible roofing. I would not expect to see stucco/EIFS terminate at the top of the wall or even wrap around at the top of the wall as shown.
When you perform the inspection on Friday, take a good look at the top of the parapet. Also, note how the water is diverted from the roof, particularly thru wall scupper. Make sure that it is properly flashed. If internal roof drains, need to make sure there are emergency overflow drains.
Jeffrey I stopped by this morning took these pics. That flashing is serving no purpose other than cosmetic in my opinion. You can see daylight behind meaning it’s not flush against wall or sealed at all.
