Rainscreen detail and belly band
My house is slowly going up. In the back, it is two stories and there will be a 12″ belly band of boral trim at the floor level, with Hardi Artisan siding above and below. I am using 1/2″ plywood as furring strips. The builder likes to use a metal flashing where the siding transitions to Boral trim of course, but I am curious about the details. I had figured on using Cor-A-Vent at top and bottom of wall, but hadn’t counted on this flashing being attached to the plywood sheathing(which will have Adhero WRB on it). How should I arrange all the parts at this transition zone? Should I just put the ends of the furring strips over the flashing and vent the very bottom and very top of the wall only? Do I need Cor-A-Vent at the lower edge of the trim and up above the flashing? Could the rain screen gap be continuous over 2 floors and the flashing nailed to the furring strips? Any tips?
