    Hello! I have an interesting problem. Sorry, no picture though! Hopefully my descriptions helps:

    On the front of my house I have t1-11 siding on the top, resting on a brick ledge that carries down to the foundation. The t1-11 has sunk into the brick ledge and the metal flashing has bulged up and allows a nice valley for water to collect in it. The flashing is all bent up, split, and isn't doing the job it's supposed to.

    I was thinking to buzz off 3" of the T1-11, remove flashing, add a new horizontal trim board and flash behind it up behind the t1? any ideas?

    Thanks!

    I would first find out how and why the T1-11 has sunk in the first place.

    The good news is, welcome to the site. The bad news is the siding dosn't slip down the wall. So you have either brick coming up or wall going down. I think you need to remove some drywall on the inside near the floor so you can inspect the bottom of the wall.
