I would like to build a roof to cover a basement walk-out cement patio. What is the proper method of flashing the new roof where it meets the vertical wall of my basement?

Thank you!

HI carinv,

Easy - You 'hang' the tin UNDER the existing siding. To do this, you may need to 'lift' or loosen the siding a bit in order to get the flashing under there. Of course, you need rust-free nails.

It may be EASIER if I knew what kind of siding you had. My best to ya and hope this helps.

Hi,

I have a simular question along the same lines. I will be attaching a screened porch with a gable roof to our 2 story house. Where the porch roof butts up against the wall of the house, I presume I'll need to cut the vinyl siding wide enough to accommodate the width of the rafter plus the roof sheathing. Would I use step flashing when I go to shingle? I noticed that most home centers have long lengths (10') of flashing which rests behind the siding and on top of the finished roof shingles. Would this be better than step flashing?
Thx..

Hi dmalmo,

Go w/Step Flashing. The long 'lengths' you refer to may be Drip Edge. (I can't see what you're looking at.)

The flashing at the home center is called WALL flashing. I noticed it is being used around my area in the same configuration, where a gable roof butts up against a 2 story house. Is it recommended to use wall flashing instead of step flashing in this situation?
