I am planning to replace damaged vinyl siding on the house. It's the lowest row. The house has 1/2" OSB sheathing on it. It was built in 1999 (Minnesota). There is no WRB wrap on the sheathing. Also there is no flashing covering the gap between sheathing and foundation. The starter strip is flush with the bottom edge of sheathing. I read somewhere the starter strip should extend 3/4" below sheathing edge and cover the foundation.
I don't think I can lower the starter strip, or it would mess up the panel lines.
Should I now apply house wrap and insert some sort of flashing to cover the gap? What kind of flashing would be appropriate?
