Copper roof flashing

Author: Travis Kinney

I leaned out the second floor window and took this shot of the copper roof flashing where the shallow porch roof meets the steep gambrel roof. All the seams are soldered with lead. There are clips at the end of each sheet on the steep gambrel pitch installed with copper nails. The vertical lip to the left will be locked into the standing seam copper roof to be installed along the entire porch roof. I have never seen red copper patina so quickly as it has on this property. It is completely covered within a week!
