Forum Title: Metal Roof Flashing Question
Hi everyone, I'm a newbee to the website. As background, my wife and I are building the attached house here in Houston, Tx. I'm not in the building profession, but have found the home building process extremely interesting (it is much more fun than my day job). If possible, I?d like to get the thoughts of the professionals on this website about a few questions I have with respect to the metal roof that was recently installed over the porch. (FYI, it was installed on Friday, so I haven't had a chance to talk with my builder yet) Question 1: Was the flashing done correctly? As you can see in one of the pictures, before the metal roof was installed, we had installed flashing that transfers the water from the hardie to the porch roof. As you would expect, the flashing is behind/underneath the last piece of hardie. When the metal roof was installed, however, it looks like the flashing went on top of the hardie, nailed, and then calked. Was this the correct way to do it? It'seems like the correct way would have been to place the new metal roof flashing under the hardie. Assuming that is the correct way, my guess is that the crew didn't want to rip off that last piece of hardie. Question 2: Assuming the flashing was done correctly, were there any options to make the flashing piece not as ?tall?? Aesthetically, it is taller than I would have preferred. When you install this type of roof, do you have flexibility in changing the height.
