Flashing Uplifting...


I have some flashing that appears to be uplifting. The aluminum seems to be in place. It seem as if the white laminate on the flashing is coming up. I was thinking of cutting the laminate off and painting it. I wonder if its because the sun beats the crap out of it all day long...not sure but any thoughts...

Oh its flashing that is under the siding and meets the shingles. It about 3 inches overlap on the shingles. Shingles are on an overhang that runs across the whole front of the house mid way.

If it's aluminum coil stock flashing it sounds like electrolysis.

Pictures please.

DO you mean its an apron flashing on which the paint finish is separating from the metal? What do you mean Laminate? When I think of Laminate I think of Formica.

The tar is under the shingles, and its only use is to hold the shingle for cosmetic purposes.

According to the op the problem is cosmetic. So why not fix it with a commonly used and proven cosmetic practice.

This first pic doesn't really show the uplift but u can see where the bare aluminum is shining in the sun.

This pic u can see where the siding meets the shingles and in between in the flashing or whatever u call it. Can u see where it is lifted? It to the left. U can't really see the j channel as u cam on the right because the white layer is coming up.

Can't really tell what is going on there. Normally that would just be a piece of bare or painted metal covering the transition from roof to wall. Hence the name roof-to-wall, or end wall or am sure others call it something else.

Is the part coming off rigid or does it flop around? Only thing I can think of possibly is the installers never took the protective film off before installing it. Can't really tell without seeing it close up, sorry. Unless that is a re-roof and what is sticking up is an old flashing that the new installers just went behind with their metal.
