Exterior deck king truss flashing question
I had a basic covered deck structure (he built the framing, I’m finishing it up) put on the back of my house. The outer gable of the roof is supported by a king truss made out of non-PT dimensional lumber.
I’m going to cover the sides and bottoms of the truss members with stained cedar to match the rest of my deck. After I install the cedar, I want to cap the top sides of each member with aluminum flashing. I’m fine with the bottom horizontal beam but I’m confused as to how to flash the elbow/armpit/crook area between the vertical member and the two angled middle members. Is there a standard method for flashing that kind of intersection/valley so that water won’t get in under my cedar cladding.
Let me know if you have any questions and reference the url for the pic for the king truss and hopefully you’ll see what I mean.
Also, should I cover the raw non-PT wood of the truss with tyvek or some other material before installing the cedar and flashing?
Thanks in advance,
p.s. just to head off some anticipated questions…
– I’m cladding in cedar because the rest of my deck is done in cedar and it’s what my wife wants (’nuff said, right?)
– I’m going to use black aluminum flashing to match my black ballusters and LV lights
– I can’t flash the entire truss with aluminum because my wife likes the look of a wooden structure
