What type of roof flashing do I have?

What roof flashing should I use

What type of flashing do I need?

We typically replace flashing as needed once the shingles are removed. However many customers choose to replace all of the flashing while the roof is being replaced.

Drip edge and gutter apron are another essential aspect of the roofing system, and the first parts of the roof system to be installed.  They form a long, narrow piece of metal which is installed along the perimeter of your roof deck.
