We decided to use 28 inch flashing material to cover the Star Plate plywood.

Each piece gets overlapped by 6 inches and attached with small drywall screws.

I would avoid using drywall screws on the exterior. They will rust and deteriorate. There are many fastener options available for exterior flashing.

A dab of silicone caulk on each screw head should be enough to weather proof the screw holes and the heads for a few years, but may need reapplied every few years.
