Concerned about moisture....

Re: Concerned about moisture....

Thanks for the diagram it makes it so much easier to understand, so the brick wall I built to close up the door gap does not have 'slab edge flashing' nor weep holes, but the walls on either side do have flashing and weep holes. My window has flashing all the way around.

Re: Concerned about moisture....

Hi @Abby

you are welcome, The Diagram is old technology but never the less still useful on forums

You will need to take specific photos of the water ingress point in front/Outside of the window and at the back/Inside and post up the photos.
If you have finished the wall then I will need to recommend alternate solutions.
OT The Static Image is a jpeg which has limited use in conveying what you see behind the wall, for that you will require a gif (rotating animation) or a viewer/app ie mobile phone/ipad etc
If you require more sophisticated 3D tools for viewing (ie Rotating, Zooming,etc) the correct construction/engineered/code compliant details before actually doing the job
Your important "DIY repair"  or "how to" post is likely to get lost in amongst vegitation hopefully @Jason  will be fixing that in the site upgrade.

Cheers
