Installing a home water drip

Water drips are strips of wood, plastic or metal, that are used to redirect water from infiltrating the sides of your home, or a certain building. These drips are usually installed over doors and windows. Without these drips, water can leak on the walls and cause water damage.

Here are a few simple steps to installing a water drip:

  1. first of all you will need to purchase a drip cap to fit above your door or window
  2. next, take some caulking and lay a layer of it on the surface where the drip will be installed.
  3. now place the drip over it and use a level to make sure it’s straight.
  4. to fix the water drip securely, use galvanizes screws.

You need to install water drips only if your windows, doors or home walls are exposed to heavy rain.
