I'm going to be assisting my dad finish up a patio cover at my brothers house.
The roof is a free standing flat roof with a 2/12 pitch, not attached to the house at all.
I've been reading posts here and do realize that a rolled roof is recommended for this little of a slope.
We are planning on going with asphalt shingles as my brother and his wife prefer that look:
- Location is Texas; not worried about ice.
- This is just a patio cover.
Assuming we do go with the shingles as planned...
What is the suggestion for the finished top edge of the roof?
I understand starting with drip edge, tar paper, reverse first course, etc.
But with a flat roof (no traditional ridge); do we finish the top edge with a drip edge?
I do plan on bringing up the rolled roof idea.
Links on rolled roofing to pass on?
