Rain Exposure Region Map
Right – The step flashing is the correct height above the roof deck
Right – The water-resistant barrier is layered over the step flashing to provide a complete drainage system
Right – There is flashing installed at the bottom of the wall to create a satisfactory drainage system
Right – Two-thirds of acrylic tape is offset above the joint and over and above the fasteners
Right – two-thirds of the blue butyl flashing tape is above the sheathing seam; the top edge of the butyl flashing tape is covered with clear sheathing tape that is also offset so two-thirds is above the top edge of the butyl flashing.
Rigid foam insulation can serve as the drainage plane when all seams are taped. Furring strips provide an air gap behind the cladding.
Step 1. Apply roof underlayment over roof deck and up the sidewall over the rigid foam insulation
Step 2. Install shingle starter strip then kick-out diverter as first piece of step flashing.
Step 3. Place the first shingle and the next section of sidewall flashing over upper edge of diverter
Step 4. Install remaining sidewall flashing, appropriate counter flashing, and shingles
Step 5. Apply self-adhesive flashing over top edge of the wall flashing, diverter, and rigid foam insulation
Step 6. Apply construction tape over the self-adhered flashing
Step and kick-out flashing at all roof-wall intersections extending ≥ 4 in. on wall surface above roof deck and integrated with drainage plane above
