Hello psooner37!

 

In most cases, flashing (an L-shaped piece of galvanized metal) is installed under the siding and hangs over the awning ... ensuring that water is re-directed away from the building and onto the awning.

 

Using a small pry bar, loosen the first row of siding above the awning.

 

Apply a bead of exterior silicone rubber caulk or exterior construction adhesive to the upturned front side of the flashing.

 

Insert the upturned edge of the flashing under the siding and re-attach the siding.

 

The caulk or construction adhesive will help secure the flashing and the outward extended leg of the L-shaped flashing will prevent water from traveling between the siding and awning.

 

Ask your Building Materials Associate for assistance selecting the proper flashing for your project.

 

CAUTION:

The exposed edge of flashing is often very sharp.

 

Wear protective work gloves when handling flashing.
