Good way to seal this?

This is a door on my deck. It has a sliding screen door. The brick molding I just removed was starting to rot at the bottom... easy to see why I guess. I was thinking of cutting a notch in that roller strip to let water out, in addition to sealing the area after I put the new PVC molding in. The roof overhang at this area is about 3' away from that surface. Is there something else I should do? Thanks.

It would be a good idea to install a small piece of flashing at the bottom of the studs and over the skirt board before you nail up the brick mold.
