Gosh, I see a lot of good things in your pictures. You are working in the underlayment well. It looks like you are working in Z Channel at the tops of the panels and sealing it in well, locking your pitch change and presumably your dormer flashing over it. I guess I am not seeing a lot that I can add to what you're doing. Feel free to email me direct at [email protected] It looks like a pretty good panel you are putting down. Has the manufacturer given you instructions?

Thanks for your replay on the roof. The roof company that I purchased the product from is Pac-Clad. So far I am happy with the product. They got a few of the details wrong but have been VERY good about fixing any issues. They have supplied me with details about a few different things however do not have any details to deal with this one issue. See the fallowing links for these details that they show: This first detail is what we have for the side of the dormers. http://www.pac-clad.com/drawings/PDF/snapclad/601K.pdf This second detail is the pitch break. We have modified this slightly with the clip for the panels that go up the steeper part of the roof as shown in the picture of my thread. http://www.pac-clad.com/drawings/PDF/snapclad/111K.pdf This last detail is the part of the roof that goes into the face of the dormer. http://www.pac-clad.com/drawings/PDF/snapclad/121K.pdf The problem that I have is that all these details are basically meeting at the corner of the dormer. So the pitch break that is not supported underneath just butfs up against the underside of J channel at the side of the dormer. I have been putting foam under the pitch break to support the panel as best I can.

I plan to run the last detail that I linked you to up under the window trim as there is not enough room under the windo to put siding.

Jon, Put your 121k.pdf flashing on the dormer, leaving it about 4"long on each side. You cut it in the break and fold the top around the dormer. This flange will have to be cut at an angle to clear the deck. On the bottom portion, we cut the lip that hooks the closure off even with the dormer. Your pitch break flashing will then slide over this (just like the overlap your doing on the pitch break metal). We mark where it is going to overlap to, install a sealant, and then when it is slid together, we drill and rivet it. Your sidewall flashing, 601.pdf is then installed when you get your panels run to it. Every thing does meet at the corner of the dormer, but it can be done and look neat. Looks like you're doing a great job. [email protected]
