Can I apply external flashing to my exposed cinder block foundation?
In my Zone 5, CT, 1953 ranch house, one room is built over a slab foundation where the cinder block is exposed and damp (due to the rain dripping onto the pavers from the roof overhang). I am waiting for a cedar planter that will cover entirely the cinder block and will serve as a rain collection vessel.
In order to further protect that wall, would it be prudent to attach some sort of tape flashing and/or rain screen? Any suggestions as to which one(s)? Thanks!
