    Flashing installed wrong


    How can I tell if flashing has been installed incorrectly? I performed the work as a DIY job but now I am uncertain if the flashing was fitted completely right. How can I tell for sure either way?

    "The flashing should be lead code 4 and up to 5 and 6inches on slated via step or not necessarily tho as it could be 12 inch and 6inch on the up stand and six on the roof, definite 12 inch if it’s tiles ie 49s Marley"

    "The flashing should be pointed into the wall at the top and sit neatly at the meeting point of the tiles/slates or roof/wall.
    If there are no leaks coming through your flashing or no water getting behind or under then you have a good flashing."

    The best way is to get it checked by a tradesman"
