New siding before new roof?
I have an old farm house that will be getting new siding and a new roof this spring/summer. Its a 3 story house with two sides of the house having a porch roof that will be getting metal sheet roofing. I don't have the roof yet, but do have the hardieplank and I would like to put it up first. I would like to get the hardi up now because it will be easier to walk on the old shingle roof for installation and painting purposes. However I'm not sure how to go about flashing the roof after the siding is up as the panels have specific fitted wall flashing. I'm sure there's an easy way to do this I'm just not coming up with any ideas yet. Thanks.
