Does This Look Like It Might Leak (Part 3)?

Posted by in The Unusual | October 07, 2013


Gutter discharges onto trim joint with

caulking instead of step flashing.



No gap provided around vent to allow drainage.

Shingles not sealed to vent flange.



This leaks only during rainfalls from the

right (or wrong?) direction.



Maybe if the water is pushed

far enough away from the wall it won’t leak.

However, this detail IS actually quite clever.
