Can someone tell me what type of trim and how to trim this area? I've got regular drip edge tacked up there for now as you can see.
If I put a rake trim up then water will smack directly into it, and I can see that leaking at some time.
I'm searching all over and can't find anything on this.
Here is a modified pic
See what others think but I think you will just do a standard gable trim and then any water that does go under the gable should stay on top of the drip edge.
This is the style of rake trim I have everywhere else... you can see how that will be a problem even when you cut and bend the ends down to try and box it in at the ends.
I was also thinking of getting just regular flashing, bending a 90, then using a load of butyl tape and screws. But with all that water rushing down and smacking into it over the years, I dont know if it will hold up.
Pic didnt post... here it is again:
