I am replacing the molding on the exterior of my entry door. I am putting a crown molding above the door, so this requires a board (1"x6") to extend out from the house (acting as the ceiling). What is the best way to install flashing on this? I'm not crazy about having a 6" piece of flashing extending the edge of the board.
Can I get away with cutting the back of the two boards that the crown molding is attached to on a 1° slant (keeping the two pieces perpindicular) and installing 1" flashing so that any water will run away from the house. I would think the 1° slant would be unnoticeable from below.
Any other ideas?
