Metal Around Dormers

Hi all, been a long while since it posted , so long I had to set up new login
So I have a question I am installing gran rib on a house we are building and it's has two dormers in the garage roof .my question is do any of you install full sheets up around dormer and tuck it under the vally flashing.I never do metel and when I do its usually strait runs. I see that fabral recommends cuting the sheet under dormer valley and then there is a lap seem on each side of dormer but I don't want to have a seem on the sides of dormer when all rest of sheets a full length

Youll need to split the sheets at the valley.

Re: Metal Around Dormers

+ 1 on splitting the sheets, just make sure you add a little extra length to those ones, don't just cut it out of a full sheet or you'll wind up short at the top.

Re: Metal Around Dormers

I think you should just wing it and hope it all comes out OK. Sounds like that's the plan.

My New Year's Res is to be more helpful. Still have a couple days to get there.....
Above all, a good roof
