Is Deck Flashing needed?

rewzterApril 22, 2012

We are selling our home and the home inspector told us that we need deck flashing. The problem is that our ledger bord is laged through our hardboard siding. The siding was not cut off so that the ledger board could be under the siding. Do I need flashing if the ledger board is on the outside of the siding?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

yes, and if the home inspector said you need it it would now be in the report and will be required now to complete the sale.
