Grant Construction Inc. has a rigorous system for all flashing details. Flashing details are a key component in the exterior cladding system. Many stucco remediation problems arise from no flashing details or poorly installed flashing details. The key flashing details are window/door head flashing, sil pan flashing, penetration flashings (hose bibs, light fixtures, electrical outlets, vents etc), kickout diverter flashing, deck ledger flashing and sil plate flashing.
