The Flashing Strip with the deck boards down. A new piece of siding will be installed covering the flashing.

The Flashing Strip should be installed under the siding and turned up the wall 3-5 inches. The Flashing will extend down under the ledger board and extend out over the Panels and Cap Strips about 6 inches.

The panels are shaped like a trapezoid with one end wider than the other creating a descending trough with the required pitch to drain the water away from the house.

View of the Panels from underneath

After the Panels are stapled into place, the 4″ Cap strips are centered and stapled on top of all the joists, covering the overlapping edges of the Panels.

The Cap Strips divert water away from the overlapped joint and into the Panels.

The Bibs direct the discharge from the Panels into the gutter.

Any water that would overshoot the gutter will hit the bib and drain into the gutter.
