Tips & Tricks For

Roof Flashing

Roof Flashing

Guidelines

Step 1

Roofing underlayment is installed in shingle fashion with a 6-inch overlap and a 4-inch lap up the vertical wall.

STEP 2

The step flashing is installed as the roofing shingles are being laid. Kick-out flashing is installed so that water is diverted away from the adjacent wall and into the gutter.

STEP 3

The drainage material is installed on the vertical wall over the step flashing to ensure water drains down and away from the wall and onto the roof.

STEP 4

Leave a 1 1/2-inch reveal (or gap) between the roof shingle to the siding materials. This is needed to prevent water on the roof from being wicked up into the siding material.

STEP 5

Finally, a rain gutter is installed at the edge of the roof to complete the roofing drainage system.
