If I didn't fold it over the water would go in between the the old and temp new flashing. Even when the old flashing was down and under the shingles the water still only went left to right. The water will go left or right with both pieces now. the only difference being the the new temp flashing also runs under the shingles.

I will send you a email with further particulars.

That extra flashing is supposed to be there. It looks like an andersen window if I'm not mistaken. There should be another piece of flashing under that one. Take that ugly piece of metal out and leave it alone. If it leaks, call the roofer back. That will probably MAKE it leak if you leave it in there.

Boy I can tell some stories of stuff we have fixed for HO's that think they are helping something and it makes it worse. Then they say "ya, look at that. That's what the last roofers did"

The flashing piece thats sticking up in the air at the top of the skylight in some of the earlier photo is indeed supposed to be there. Only it is supposed to be under the shingles. There was no way to ( And I wouldn't want to ) get it back in place without pulling the shingle. So as temporary measure I slid a piece of flashing in, up and over. Effectively making it identical in function , if not the aesthetic form, to the way it was prior to the new roof. Plus I can slip it back out easily.

It won't leak!

no it`s not supposed to be underneath,that`s to keep leaves and debris from the juncture of the shingles and flashing

Yes, this is what I was trying to say. I normally do not install that piece because it is useless.

If you look at photo 9 on page 1 you can see the underbelly of that piece sticking up. If that is not supposed to bend down flush to the roof line and be under the shingle what keeps the water from backing up onto the ice & water?

Also you can see it is not the finish color standing up like that. If I understand you gents correctly it's not really needed. If so I'll pull my flashing piece and just let the other stick up.

A learning experience...

go to andersen.com and look at photos,the piece that goes underneath channels the water and has a reverse hem to keep the water out,read back doc you`ll see where i mentioned how the ice&water shield should have been run up onto the curb on all 4 sides to back up the step,and counter flashing,usually after the flashing is installed we`ll cut a strip to seal the top of the reverse hem onto the roof

Ok I see what you mean. The roofer told me he was not concerned with that piece. way back when he said ...Oh I know the skylight is done right. I did that myself, so I know it's right.

I took my piece out last night before the rain came. I did not notice any leaks. Nor do I expect any either. We shall see after a while I guess.
