I have a deck ledger attached to the rim joist (the vinyl siding was cut away), and some flashing above the ledger. On the side of the ledger there is a gap between the end of the 2x10, and the siding. I was going to put a j-channel trim piece on the siding:
I would then use silicone caulk to basically fill in the space between the edge of the vinyl and the ledger so water can't make it in there. Is this a good idea?
I can't seem to find much information about how to flash the end of the ledger. One post here didn't quite cover how to fill in a 1/4 to 1/2 in gap.
Also I was going to caulk the nails on the joist hangers, they had to be 3 inches long so they went through the house wrap.
