Drip edge metal
My flat roof (1:12) has 1" x 6" fascia board that creates a 4" parapet because it is nailed to the 2" deck edge.

Is this correct after tear-off:

1. Install cant strips around perimeter.

2. Base sheet and torched material travel the deck and up the 4" parapet wall.

3. Drip edge metal (in the shape of a inverted "U") fitted over the fascia/roof covering material and nailed to the fascia board.

Anything missing?

Sounds correct. Hidden continuous cleats would be better.

Can you explain the cleat and how/where it fits into the new roof material?

I searched the forum - could not find description, size, weight, how to fasten, where to buy, etc.

I am doing 1/2 (4 squares) of the roof and, have to maintain the same profile and roof line on the front (I am reusing the carefully removed, 20 year old, custom made drip edge.)

I hope this helps. There are variations on this theme too.
