What a difference a builder can make!

Look at the great looking tail on this eave. This is a great gutter and flashing detail. Many times the flashing is never there which leads to rot and decay of this area which is very common as in the next photo.

                   

These rotton eaves are actually quite common way of doing it wrong.Time and time again I see these and I have to say I wish I can show the world the pic above.

 

 

Big difference..                         "For the best protection get the right inspection"

HUGE difference!  And what a simple thing to do to prevent the wood rot.  I do wish that ALL builders did this--it seems to come up on alot of inspections!
