  • Exterior door under covered porch

    What is the standard in terms of flashing an exterior door when it's completely under a covered porch. Early 1900's home. Door is set in about 3' from the closest side so potentially some seriously sideways rain, maybe? But could I get by with just good caulk behind trim and under sill, spray foam gap from inside and call it good?

    thanks,

    Treat it like a regular door. The house may be powerwashed one day.

      Agreed. Don't skip any protection under the assumption the door won't see weather. That porch could be a thing of the past one day, but the door might remain.
