Pictures of the Week-What’s Wrong With This?



So I looked at a job yesterday here in SLO County; the contractor is taking over a job from another contractor, and the decks and stairs were already flashed and drains installed…
This is what I found…looking at the stairs, can you see what’s wrong with the flashing/weep screed?

Yup, the weep on the down leg is not there, the stucco guy didn’t install a weep, and just brought the paper and wire to the edge of the flashing. Now I have no way of bringing my waterproofing into the corner and out onto the flashing…this is a big leak possibility unless the stucco is opened and weep installed and terminated properly.

Then I looked at this drain set up…I have no idea what they were thinking of either…
