Why Scuppers Need to Be Flashed on the outside wall


I posted a couple pictures of a job we’re doing in Grover Beach earlier this week; there is dry-rot and structural damage, quite a bit and it’s all because of (mostly) the scuppers allowing water past them, as seen in this picture.

You can see the rusted plate right below the opening, building paper is visible, but no counter flashing was installed over the scupper, which would allow the lather to put paper behind, then down over the counter-flashing…

This $50.00 to install item, by deleting it, caused $5,000 in damages…

Insist your scuppers get counter-flashed on the outside, it’s one of those differences between me and my competitors…I put them in, most of my competitors don’t.

For a job done correctly every time, where, when it comes to waterproofing, compromise is not an option , call me, Bill Leys at 805-801-2380
