Window sill flashing detail
I am completing design details on my house and am a little stumped with the details around the window sill. I will be using Vaproshield's wrap and window components along with Intus windows which have no flanges and Ceraclad's fiber cement rain screen system.
I have added several pictures. The wall is a 10 inch SIP with wood inserts to form the window opening. I will use Vapro's 3D corners and membrane to flash the opening then Vapro's sill saver system to form a sloped sill under the window. As there are no flanges this sill system will form good support.
My question is how to connect the sill and window into the rainscreen system and its 15mm gap. I assume that the sill can drain into the rainscreen gap over the top of the flashing and house wrap as the rainscreen gap drains below. The trim is sealed and so little if any water should get behind and into the sill area.
