Howdy everyone. In this video we are showing you folks how, and when to use metal saddles to waterproof intricate roof-to-wall areas or other spots like parapit caps on roofs.
This is not likely something most homeowners will encounter, and fabrication of these units should absolutely be left to the professionals. Luckily this general contractor had a great sheet metal guy, and these flashing turned out perfect.
Many folks often try to cheap out and skip using these, opting instead to caulk the areas or use a peel and stick membrane. These can work in the short term, but for the longest lasting build we recommend using these style saddles. This will save you serious dough in the long run by protecting important areas from water intrusion which can lead to wood rot and numerous other problems.
Remember: You get what you pay for!

Good day to all our over 100,000 subscribers on Youtube, and the average homeowner, DIYer, or weekend plastering warrior who happens to stumble on this ‘how to plaster video.’ Our channel has more than 40 million views for a good reason.
