joining metal to shingles
I will be installing a very flat metal patio roof(small pitch) .it has to connect to the asphault roof of home that is steep.What technique is used at the joining area to transition so no leaks will arise?

Remove singles for 2' or so along the transition. Go up the transition with the metal about 18". Flatten the seams and reshingle.

When using some steel standing seam panels, you can 'box-fold' the panel 'flats' like making paper airplanes, and install terminastion flashing that extends 12" up the steep slope, under the shingles, and 8" out over the steel panels. Put pop-rivets through the term flasing into the tops of the panel seams.

-but you got the idea

the flashing is at the lowest point of fireplace and curves are cut to fit where metal roofing is and it goes over roofing and sealed
