It is important to note, that Masonry Flashing issues have been more prevalent on newer construction, particularly homes built during the Chicago housing boom, and homes built with Spit-Face or Concrete-Block Masonry construction.


Masonry walls are made up of multiple courses of Brick or Concrete-Block, the outer-course is what you see on the outside of your home, the inner-course is between that and the drywall on the interior, your doors and window are set into openings somewhere in between the two courses.


Newer homes and buildings built with Concrete-Block, Spit-Face Masonry and some types of brick are susceptible to unusually high amounts of water penetration into their outer walls.


This is due to the Porous nature of the masonry used in their construction, so ultimately  any large amounts of water penetration into the walls above your doors and windows will result in interior water damage in those areas if you have Flashing Issues.
