Trying to find out the best way to do the sill on my exterior doors.
The doors are set in flush with the interior and have the jambs and sills extended out the same length of the rough framing, which is roughly 11″ deep( I have 6″ exterior insulation)
I trying to figure how to flash the sill, if I put a slope sill, it’s only 6″ wide so where would you put it, front or back of the 11″ Would you just use a back dam, or some combination of both?
I was planning on covering the sill in ZIP stretch tape.
I was thinking metal sill but thought I’d read something about not doing that in cold climate.
How have people done their door sills with innie doors and thick walls?
