Counter Flashing

Counter flashing is one of the most important parts of any roof, and yet it is the least understood. It is needed wherever shingles run into brick walls or brick chimneys. These connections can not simply be caulked or tarred, as many roofers do, they must be 'under flashed' with pre-bent pieces of aluminum (tins) between every shingle, and counter flashed with a piece of metal nailed into the brick. The top of the counterflashing gets sealed with color matching caulk.
