Flashing on Standing Seam Roof
 
1 Attachment(s)
I am working on my house in Maine. After being taken for a few grand from a roofer that never showed up and caused a LOT of damage to my house I have come to the conclusion that I have to roof this place myself. I tried to get some others in but no such luck.

This is a tough place to try as a first time that is for sure. We have pitch breaks all over the place plus dormers and so on. There are two places that I am a little aprehensive about. First that I am going to be dealing with this weekend is the flashing going into the dormer. I know how to flash the front of the dormer that is easy. It is the corner and along the top of the pich break that goes up the side of the dormer that I am not sure of.

Any help would be fantastic. I have enclosed pictures to hopefully help and I can keep this thread updated for others as the progress moves forward.

run the panels longer at the corner of the dormer,bend it up the wall like you would step,thenstart another panel slightly below the corners and make the opposite cuts,seal the corner w/bond or geocell 2300 before installing the lap piece

these panels should all be bent 2-3" up the walls wherever possible,at the front of the dormer,and the lap pieces that run up the sides should all be bent 2-3 " up on the walls--check outmy buddy`s site,you should be able to find suitable detail pictures there

So you are saying that I should do the dormer first and run those panels long and then put the pitch break panels in up to the side of the dormer? Not sure if you can tell from the pictures but I have the Z clips all going on the same plane so that it looks like one continuous line. I thought it would look cleaner that way. I put foam under the pitch break panel in the second picture to sapport it so that it would not get dented if some one stepped on it and also to help with any oil canning. Should I make the Z clips lower on the window area so that the panels can run over one another?

I plan to put the metal up the wall a couple inches and actually tuck it under the window molding.

What I had thought would be best was to put the pitch break detail on in front of the dormer and run it a couple inches long. Then run the pitch break that is comeing down the roof up the wall. The J Channel would be under this detail. This is a JPG of the detail that the manufacturer has

This is the roof to wall transition up the side of the dormer http://www.pac-clad.com/drawings/PDF/snapclad/601K.pdf

This is the detail for the front of the dormer http://www.pac-clad.com/drawings/PDF/snapclad/121K.pdf

This is the pitch break http://www.pac-clad.com/drawings/PDF/snapclad/111K.pdf

I hope that this helps us out a bit.

Never saw that pitch break detail before. You show a cut panel with a 3/4 inch bend. Why not box fold the panel end and be done with it? No sealant, No z-bar.

When you say "box fold" do you mean lay the standing seams over? I can not do that with this style panel. I think that looks horrible to be honest.

they`re in my 2nd and 4th reply to you(the blue writing),my buddy frank is Tinner 666,I asked him to come here to help you out,best metal man I KNOW,if you box fold the top of the panel like he says the siding should come down to the top of the rib and cover anyway--look at the sites where you`ll see photos :wink:

The last 2 pics were taken from the underside of the roof and show the boxed closure.
