flashing help


Going to be putting on a new asphalt roof in the coming weeks and almost solved all of my questions, but one problem still eludes me.
I have to poles for my service entrance, one is the typical round pole with the weatherhead, and the other is a chunk of angle iron holding the drop wire (I believe thats the term). Flashing the pole is easy, but how would I flash the angle iron? The previous owner opted for slapping as much tar on as they could and called it finished, and I would rather not do this, but unfortunately I haven't found any other answers online. Any ideas out there other than custom made flashing that needs to be welded on site?

Pictures speak wonders.

Will take a picture after work tomorrow, little dark now. Good call. Hopefully this thread won't get forgotten about by then

Lets try again, description as above in OP.
1st pic shows the drop wire on the left connected up to the angle iron. The second pic shows the hack job that was done with tar to seal in the angle iron. The weatherhead mast I'm not concerned with since I will get a split boot for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If the weatherhead is properly mounted and secured to the side of the house then that tension pole is not necessary. I'd remove it and mount everything on the weatherhead like it should be.

I'm not positive anymore what you want to see if that doesn't show it...My question, how do I flash/waterproof a piece of 1x1 angle iron that is going through a sloped roof?

Post a picture from the ground showing the whole roof line. We can zoom in if needed to see the detail.

You do not have to take a macro zoomed photo showing one part. What we really need is the whole roof and the side of the house, to see what is going on.
