joining metal to shingles


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.
