STUDY OF FLASHED-ROOF ATTACHMENT SYSTEMS

We have been weighing the merits and demerits of the various flashed roof connection systems. Various issues are in play here, including weatherproofness, structural integrity and rail height. In the future we will be examining all of these issues. The first consideration in front of us for some pending jobs is rail height. Below are 4 samples with the measurements. If you are interested in these issues, stay tuned to this page as we will continue to analyze more products with more criteria.
