      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Who has a good selection of flashing sizes/colors?

Recommended Posts

I am looking for flashing that will go between the vinyl siding and cultered stone on the front of our house. The major home stores have limited colors and sizes. I need something with a small drip edge (1") so it doesn't deter from the stone. Any suggestions on a place in the north metro that would have a good selection of flashing (L shaped drip cap)?

thanks!

Usually you can get coil stock any color and then have someone with a brake, bend it for you. Siders normally do this type of work. I have a 10 foot brake that we use to make all the colored flashings we need. The stores normally just have white, brown, and galvanized.

I've done what your looking for many times. As Roffer said, this will be done with a brake. Call a siding contractor and set up a time and place. You'll want the bottom lip of the L doubled over which will make for a strong, clean, and straight edge. Not to mention any trim that low to the ground is going to get bumped. Joints will over lap and a relief cut on that double lip for a slip joint. Back to the profile of that drip cap. I'd go with a Z style instead of the L but still double over the edge.

The extra brake with the Z will make for a stronger profile and is also intended to stop water that'll travel back and up by surface tension.

You'll give the profile with measurements to the guy on the brake. If the starter strip is already in place, you'll slide the flashing behind it. If you need to fasten that trim at any point it should be predrilled first then use aluminum trim nails.

You can also give a call to any HVAC company. They have breaks and can normally bend whatever you want, just drop off the material, and pick it up after a while.

Provide them with a drawing of what you want, and they normally have more equipment then a brake if you need extra stuff done.
