Many of the leaks that RAM Builders fixes are due to the way one contractor ties into another contractor's work. At these connections, a flashing is usually required, since it’s at a transition point it’s often unclear who provides the flashing, so many times it’s not installed. Many times the subcontractor that’s providing the flashing is not the contractor that ultimately ties into the flashing, so the contractor that’s tying into it may not understand what it’s for or how to tie into it correctly. If the flashing is not tied into correctly it’s useless and not going to work. An improperly installed flashing can sometimes accelerate a problem. After windows are flashed by the window installer, it is then up to the stucco, stone, or brick contractor to tie his building papers into the window flashing.
