Since October 2014, St. Louis’ Freedom Place (4011 Delmar Blvd.) has served as a ‘symbol’ of hope for those less fortunate.

The importance of understanding the flashing design principles and installation requirements between the masonry wall assembly and the roof flashing system cannot be understated. All too often, the exterior masonry walls of a building structure are thought of as being watertight and require little or no maintenance.
