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:
- first of all you will need to purchase a drip cap to fit above your door or window
- next, take some caulking and lay a layer of it on the surface where the drip will be installed.
- now place the drip over it and use a level to make sure it’s straight.
- 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.
