Stupid homeowner question #78:
My roof is being redone. Complete tearoff after 120 years. I have a dormer w/ cedar shingle siding (see photo). In my discussions with the roofer we agreed he would remove the lower courses of shingle to flash where the roof meets the sidewalls.
I got home tonight and the roof was shingled, yet no sidewall shingles have been removed. It was dark when I got home so I can see what they did. Is it possible to CORRECTLY flash the sidewall without removing some shingle courses?
Of course I will call the roofer tomorrow and have a discussion. I was under the impression the correct way to flash was to remove the siding and to install the flashing. Is it correct to just slide the flashing under the cedar shingles? Just want trying to get an idea what is the industry standard way to do it.
