Question

Rake edge flashing with Smart Vent


HELP! OK, I've got the Smart Vent on, the I&W shield down and tar paper to the peak. How do I work the rake edge drip edge using ODE? Should it be under the Smart Vent? I put it over and it looks like crap. I'll be pulling the nails tomorrow morning but I wasn't sure how to handle the flashing.

So, after the Smart Vent, assuming I put it underneath, how do I handle the rest of the I&W? Do I transition to on top? It doesn't seem intuitive to me how to handle it.

Ed? Any suggestions? (not dissing anyone, but Ed uses Smart Vent a lot so he should have an idea what to do.)

Thanks

Rake edge flashing with Smart Vent


On the DCI Products, Inc. website, they have an illustration for how to mitre the smart vent to create the lower profile for similar situations as you have encountered.

Prior to that information, we installed the ODE drip edge metal under the Smart Vent.

Also, on some 12/12 pitch roofs we did, we added another piece of ODE drip edge metal on top of the Smart Vent to cover the tapered side edge profile.
