Flashing details for entry door in brick veneer
Does anyone know where I can find a flashing detail for an entry door in a brick veneer home? Or alternatively, a good point of contact to get one drawn up? I’ve looked at the GBA detail library as well as all the Brick Industry Association documents but I can’t seem to find one that matches my particular situation.
I will be replacing some exterior doors and I want to get the flashing details right. I’m open to removing and replacing some brick if I need to.
The entry doors in my house are at the level of the second or third course of brick (which sits on a brick ledge cast into the concrete foundation). The tricky part seems to be how to integrate the door sill pan flashing with the base (through-wall) flashing of the surrounding brick. Attached is a photo of a garage side door with the sill bricks removed. Obviously the door wasn’t flashed correctly because there was no sill pan at all. You can see the sheet metal base flashing at the sides though wrapping under the building paper and then folded to extend under the first course of brick and terminating in a drip edge.
