Universal Weep Screed
Flannery’s Universal Weep Screed (Patent #5,630,297) serves as a typical weep screed with a unique benefit. The benefit to the Universal Weep Screed is the longer return flange on the bottom of the screed, which allows for a tight fit against concrete foundations. Standard weep screeds have a shorter return leg, which can be an issue when installed over steel or wood framed buildings that utilize wood sheathing. Typically, framing members are set at the edge of the foundation and the sheer panels are fastened to the framing. This then creates a gap between a typical weep screed and the concrete foundation. By lengthening the lower return leg, the Universal Weep Screed rests firmly against the concrete foundation eliminating the possible gap.
Flannery’s Universal Weep Screed (Patent #5,630,297) is a brake formed metal product. Flannery’s Brake Formed products are available in a number of metals and finishes. Most can be specified in the following metals: .040” Thick Clear Anodized Aluminum; .040” Thick Mill Finish Aluminum; 26 ga. Copper; 26 ga. Stainless Steel T-304 #2 “Mill Finish”; 26 ga. Stainless Steel T-304 #4 “Brushed” Finish; and 26 ga. Galvanized Steel. Brake Formed products come in 10’ lengths and can be ordered in custom sizes and paint finishes.

Attach Weep Screeds to the framing with nails, screws, or other approved fastening methods. Attach the bottom edge of the Weep Screed no less than 1″ below the joint formed by the foundation and framing. The nose of the screed must be placed no less than 4 inches above raw earth or 2 inches above paved surfaces. The weather resistant barrier (two layers of building paper required if plywood sheathing is used) and lath must entirely cover the vertical attachment flange and terminate at the top edge of the nose or ground flange (per ASTM C 1063-03, Sec. 7.11.5).
