What exactly do you plan on doing with it?

Bend roll flashing into 4' sections to flash where the shingles meet the house.

If this is just a one time job then why not just rent a break from Home Depot?

Home Depot in my area doesn't rent tools. I would *think* that they would sell pre-bent runs of flashing, but for some reason, neither they, nor Lowes, carry any longer than the little pieces used for step flashing.

Lowes and Most lumber yards carry prebent aluminum fashia, or any siding company could bend you what little you will need,
A roll of coil stock is selling from $75.00 to $85.00 a roll so by buying the brake, and the material it would be cheaper to just have a siding company do the whole job then to go buy the stuff you would never need again.

How do you plan on trimming out the arch? Think about using vinyl lumber.

Lol - that's just a picture I found on the internet as an example.

And I'm almost positive our Lowes doesn't carry pre-bent flashing. Should it be in the same area as drip-edge?

Look in your yellow pages under siding and look for a real siding supply house.
