Tips & Tricks For

Roof Flashing

Roof Flashing


Step 1

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


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.


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.


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.


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