Am I correct in calling both of these out as a defect for lack improper installation of flashing? There is step flashing on the sidewall, but it is outside the wood shingle so water can get behind it. I can’t tell if there was pre-existing flashing underneath the siding, and this step flashing was put in place just to keep runoff that’s already on the roofing surface from going into the seam.
The headwall flashing in the 2nd pic, however, seems like it’s not going to work since it is outside the siding and it doesn’t appear there is any sealant at the top of it. Thoughts?
In the last picture, you can see they caulked between the wood shingle siding joints, suggesting they had water damage inside below that are (confirmed by old water stains on ceiling inside). Right below I see that step flashing again outside the siding.
Then of course, it appears none of them have counter flashing, but that is secondary since it wouldn’t matter anyway since you would still have the same problem of water getting behind since flashing is outside siding.
Please let me know if I’m mistaken about any of this before I send out my report later. Thanks.
