FlashGuard is flashing designed by installers. Guards against roof leaks!
FlashGuard not only incorporates the principle of water prevention but also manages water once wicking does occur. The channeled flashing and anti-siphoning slots ensure water does not penetrate the home’s water barrier. An offset in the Base Plate accommodates the height difference in the shingle layers which, with other flashing systems causes the L Foot and rail to twist on the roof.
