How to Connect a Composition Roof to a Metal Roof

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Clyde in Missouri is on the line with a roofing question. What can we do for you today?

    CLYDE: I’ve got a composition roof on my house. I have a garage. It’s 14 foot, 6 inches to the perpendicular, with a metal roof. And I want to attach the two. What would be my most simple way to do it?

    TOM: So these two roofs will intersect, Clyde?

    CLYDE: Yeah, they’re the same height, floor and roof ridge. Everything is the same.

    TOM: But you have metal on one and then you want to put composition on the other. So what would have to happen is the metal roof would be flashed up underneath the composition roof. The metal would actually be both the roof of the garage and the flashing for the composition. So where they come together, the composition would overlap on top of the metal but the metal will actually go under the composition to create the watertight seal. Does that make sense?

    CLYDE: Yeah. That’ll help out a lot. I can go from there. Appreciate it.

    TOM: Alright. Good luck with that project. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
