Installation of patented WickRight Capstone Vented Support is required on WickRight Capstone Vented Drip Edge and Capstone Vented Receiver Clip installations on masonry walls wider than 8′.
Capstone Vented Support prevents self-adhered flashing – from sagging overtime. Self Adhered flashings are known to sag overtime – when this happens in cold climates, water can accumulate in the dip and then freeze in the winter. The freeze/thaw action can cause the self-adhered flashing to crack, allowing water to leak into the wall.
Vented Support is installed under capstones between Capstone Vented Drip Edge (both sides) or between Capstone Vented Drip Edge and Capstone Vented Receiver Clip.
Install carefully on top of WickRight Vapor Permeable Membrane into small dollops of sealant placed at 12″ intervals on the membrane. DO NOT push into wall core.
WickRight Passive Ventilation is field proven in over 100 buildings in Chicago, Milwaukee, Tampa, Central Ohio and Northern California.
20 year limited manufacturer warranty available when installed by WickRight authorized installer
