Spanish Missing Flashing Causing Water Intrusion

http://a-actionhomeinspection.com – This is Luis Perez with A-Action Realty Inspection Services; we are going to be talk about kick out flashing today. While performing a home inspection in Forney Texas, east of Dallas Texas, in a home built in 2011. So kickout flashing, I am going to show you a diagram here. So this diagram, as you can see, notates pretty much what it is, which is this little piece right here is. It’s normally installed in the area where the wall continues and the roof stops, we put this little piece to move water away from the wall. So this is what can happen if you don’t have it, water will stick to the wall instead of moving away from it. That could lead to moisture intrusion or damage of the exterior walls. So here we are going to show you an example. Today it has been raining all day during the home inspection Forney Texas, we are going to walk out here. I am going to show you on this wall, if you look at is closely, you can see that there is a dark spot on the brick, see the vertical spot, see how it kind of has a greenish kind of tent. If you look upwards, you can see the caulking between the trim boards is deteriorated and pulling loose. And then we go all the way to the top, we are going to see an area where there is a gutter, the roof, and a wall, which will be the chimney chase. I am going to back up a bit, and I am going to zoom in. As you can see, there is no kick out flashing in that spot, so that, plus the gutter has a negative slope, as you can see there is a spout over here, so the water falls from the roof, hits your gutter, and instead of moving this way, it’s moving that way. That water is overflowing and sticking to this wall and moving all the way down here; which is causing our stain. Now I didn’t see any evidence of moisture intrusion on the interior, but as you can see it is causing a small problem. Thank you for watching this video and we will see you next time.

Water Intrusion into Buildings Forensic Investigations

How does water flow? Let me count the ways. Home inspectors know the three major causes of home structural and operational failures are water, water, and water. They often identify all types of water problems during a home inspection. But how severe is the problem based on the visual inspection clues? How does an engineer explain these problems to insurance companies, attorneys, and irate homeowners? Who is at fault when water damage occurs? Learn how a professional engineer approaches water intrusion and analyzes the problems with specific case studies. Learn the science behind moisture intrusion and damage to homes.

In this video we show how to remove the rear wiper on a MK7 GTI and replace it with the ECS Tuning Billet Rear Wiper Delete Plug. We walk through the removal of the rear wiper, removal of the wiper motor, and removal of the plastic hatch trim.

Removing the rear wiper gives a clean symmetrical appearance to the back of your hatch. Once installed the complete assembly seals against water intrusion by way of a double-O-ring sealing design.
