I am getting ready to install metal roof after ripping off old shake shingles so it will go directly on the wood sheathing. I have one corner that is along the roof slant. Bascially I have a 4/12 pitch roof that abuts to a wall with the side of the chiminey at a 90 degree to the wall. Is there a trick to trimming this with the metal trim for the best seal? See attached image. thanks. steve c

Steve, Best option in those cases to to pull off a couple of course of siding and get your ice/water up the side wall as well as your flashing details. This is where snow will accumulate and you will need the metal to be up the side wall to prevent melting and accumulation leakage.

thanks Eric, I do plan on pulling off enough siding for the ice and water plus the trim. Any tricks to folding or whatever on existing trim pieces to make the metal part water tight. My thought was i can cut and fold both the sidewall trim and the endwall but i will still have the center hole on all the folds. sealant for that my best bet?

Metal to metal part does not need to be water tight as it pertains to the flashing interface with the roof. Should be water shedding. Ice and water at the centers and you can create a metal patch for that section to help step the water detail and then seal
