How to waterproof and prevent ice and snow getting through metal flashing

We like to reuse metal siding if its in good condition because it saves clients a lot of money by not making an unnecessary decision to replace the metal.

Some roofing companies just tuck the membrane underneath the flashing and they don’t remove it.

We carefully remove the old metal siding, make sure the pieces are labelled so they can be easily reinstalled. You can see in the video how we have taken the drip flashing off.

Then we put the new roofing membrane up the side of the wall so that ice, rain and snow cannot get underneath the flashing and the membrane. We typically run the membrane up the wall detail around 12-14 inches to maximize the waterproofing.

We hope this video helps show you what we do!
