Get a piece of door stop, parting stop and screen moulding, show them to the person speccing the stop and ask them which one they would like you to use.

In this case I'd lean towards the parting stop, but that is not my call.

You need something to fasten the screens to. Make a flat plane with some 1x stock.you will need to scribe it into the shingles, cut a bevel on the one that attaches to the post. On the bottom you will get rot problems .

Bed (caulk) the bottom stop into the wall cap. On the bottom of the screens make sure to put a couple of screws to keep the screens off the cap. This while let it dry. If you can get away with no bottom stop that is even better.
