I am in the planning phase for installing a metal roof and have a question about valley flashing. The metal roof I am looking at is 5 ridge and the manufacturer recommends using a w shaped valley. On my roof there are for valleys that terminate(at the top) with the main roof. My question is how do I bring these two flashings together where they meet at the top of the dormer?? Because of the w pattern I can't seem to figure out how to overlap them. Is there some other kind of flashing that I need?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should be able to get the detail drawings of how to join the two w-valleys from the manufacturer, as joining the two valleys at the top of a dormer is pretty common detailing. If the manufacturer can't (or won't) help you, you may want to look for alternatives, as what will you do if you later get into trouble and need them to help you? If they want your money, let them earn it.
