I'm just referring to the top edge of a shed roof. It doesn't adjoin to anything. I wasn't sure if I could just use a normal drip edge because of the angle.

How would you peel and stick a pipe flashing? A chimney flashing? A gutter flashing?

Besides, whoever would peel and stick any roof as the roofing solution should not be giving out roofing advice.

Where I live, we often peel and stick entire roofs due to snow load and ice damming.
Surely you can answer the pipe and vent flashing questions if you deal with roofs.



Back to the original question...

So the shed roof doesn't join to anything? What is there to flash? Got a picture or a drawing showing the area you are concerned about?

We make up a special flashing for this, but if you are using off-the-shelf parts, then standard drip edge will work. Install it after the shingles so it covers the nails on the top course and then caulk the nail heads of the nails holding down the drip edge with a good quality roofing caulk.

or for a more permanent, professional repair, you could cleat the custom made flashing so that you have no exposed fasteners through the roof.
