Hi Joe, the post are off the ground on brackets. This area is 4 feet up as I have a stone column built around four 4x4s and there's a architectural foam cap over them. I want to waterproof the post at that foam cap if any water crept in past my caulk. It would be minimal water, if any, as the post/plywood box joints are covered in lath and scratch coat too. I was also considering FortiFlash, a flexible asphalt and poly film self adhesive product instead of the metal flashing. The mfr. of FF sid this is a good application for that product.
