Flashing is thin sheet metal that is attached to the sides of the house around the corner boards, windows and other openings. These metal strips divert rainwater and melted snow from the openings and send it away from the house. Flashing is often made of aluminum, stainless steel, zinc, lead and even copper.

Exterior Flashing

Flashing is an important part of a home's exterior. Without flashing, rainwater can get underneath your siding and between your windows and the trim, causing the wood on your home to deteriorate and possibly leading to water damage inside your home. Your home inspector will check to make sure that the flashing on your house is properly installed and in good condition.
