Flashing

Just an informative note to DIY deckers. Here's the end result of about 8 years of PT lumber against aluminum flashing.

LOL, that's awesome! No wonder the boxes of aluminum trim coil say "not for treated wood contact".

What would normally be used in that situation? Lead? Bitumen-felt? (just wondering).

Galvanized would be used. Maybe plastic?

I've also heard of people using the window wrap (sticky rubber stuff) to separate the wood from the aluminum.

So what's the best flashing do Pros here recommend? Do you apply multi layers flashing? I would like to know before I begin my deck project. I looked many references and there are many methods. Thanks,

Galvanized works best. No need for multiple layers if the flashing is installed properly for vertical drainage. I usually have a local sheet metal company break mine before hand to my specs. Makes it soooo much easier to install. I have a fellow contractor who owns a break, but finding him, and finding his break in the same state is a career, so I just have them done.
