Decra Side Flashing Roof Tile Accessory

Great care is needed where the roof surface joins a vertical wall such as the case in two-story or split level homes, or where dormer windows protrude from a steep pitch roof. It is essential to bend the ends of all tile courses up under the flashing. Measure the gap (allowing for overlap) from the last tile to the vertical surface. This gives the bending line. Add 40mm (11/2”) for the cutting line. Cut and bend up the tile. Secure the up-turned tiles in place with the upturn against the wall. Do not secure the tile to the wall. (Refer to figs 4.3.1 and 4.3.2). Nail the side flashing to the wall ensuring that the flashing is hard down and straight. Alternatively, a hidden gutter is sometimes specified. In this case, the ends of the tile battens stop short of the vertical studs by 45mm (13/4”) in order to accommodate the gutter. The gutter is positioned before the roof is installed.
