Greetings, I have been building our dream home now for 10 years+, and have had many little challenges and have learned a lot. Usually, I can figure things out on my own, given enough time, but this one has me stumped. I need to figure out how to terminate my panels and valley where one dead ends but the other doesn't for about 18". I am including a picture to help give you an idea of this....

Thanks and congrats on your dream home. I will open this up for others but I believe you would just run the valley pan down as long as it needs to be for the one side and then angle cut it and bend it over the gable for the adjoing side.

Thanks for your reply Todd. I see that my attachment didn't work too well, but if you copy & paste the URL (w/out the [IMG]) it will bring the picture up..... "I believe you would just run the valley pan down as long as it needs to be for the one side and then angle cut it and bend it over the gable for the adjoing side." I can see that that would work, but how do we run the panels down past the edge of the roof? Or should I just run the valley all the way down to the point and terminate the panels at the seam all the way up and down it? Does this make sense? My wife and I have stared at this long enough and we only have so much time to get this done! :-o

Thanks. I did pull up your picture. Yes, the panels will just run as low as they need to and be cut at the angle as well. I apologize ... I may be entirely missing something here though. Maybe someone else will weigh in. One thing you really have to be careful on that left side is that you do not do anything which traps or impedes water flow off the roof. And if you're in an ice and snow area that is even more critical. You could just fold the panels and valleys over the edge of the roof.
