Pictures Of Aluminum Edge Flashing For EPDM Roof ???


I'm trying to properly flash and gutter an EPDM roof on a wood frame house that was mis-installed the first time around; what we've got is a wood frame wall that goes up to meet a roof, where the only surface on the roof is an EPDM sheet, and we've got about three inches of excess EPDM which is overhanging down onto the very top of the wall.

A local roofer told me that I should install aluminum flashing above the EPDM sheet, and then secure the aluminum down onto the EDPM via Mulehide tape, so that the final result would look like

---TOP---
Mulehide tape
Aluminum flashing
EPDM
Roof plywood
---BOTTOM---

In pictures:

With the gutter, it would look like:

Is that correct?

I googled and googled and googled for this sort of thing, but I couldn't find an online picture, so if anyone knows of some good pictures showing the correct installation method, I'd be most grateful.

Also, if the EPDM isn't glued to the edge of the roof, then I'm thinking about gently pulling it back and placing a second piece of flashing beneath it, so that I'd have something like:

---TOP---
Mulehide tape
aluminum flashing
EPDM
Mulehide tape and/or flat-head nail
aluminum flashing
Roof plywood
---BOTTOM---

Is that sort of thing okay, or is it like too much overkill?

Thanks for any suggestions you might have!

The first sketch is how I would do it, and I believe is the recommended method.

that's it.if you live in a colder climate you need to get some water block tape,to go under the epdm against the fascia then the drip edge.
so you don't get no ice creeping under you epdm.
and I would go to your local commercial roofing company and get some reinforced self laminated cover strip.and the primer too.
