This episode of the BS* + Beer show is a sweeping discussion about Flashing Details with “big dogs” Doug Horgan, Mike Guertin, Aron Jones, and Bryan Uhler. In addition to sharing a how-to video on fabricating end dams and some visuals illustrating the right and wrong ways to flash, our guests touch on topics that include dealing with wind-driven moisture, choosing products, material compatibility, sequencing and redundancy, horizontal and vertical joints, galvanic reactions, and of course, kickout flashing. Mike Guertin puts the question to the panel: What’s your favorite flashing and why? Tune in to hear the answers and pick up some expert tips.
