Roof sidewall

Hello roofing experts
Can someone tell me on a roof to sidewall [at a slant say like 180 degrees or more ]]is the flashing suppose to lay on top of the roof shingles on composition material or tucked underneath. I see some comp homes with it on top and some tucked. What is correct and why do people do it differently.

step flashing

I most likely should not comment on why some people do what they do...

I can tell you however, that the proper method is to "step flash" the wall. (assuming you are using asphalt or wood shingles)

The flashing comes packaged in bundles of 100 usually. 1 peice is interlaced with each shingle just above the exposure line, where it is covered buy the next shingle.

Check out your shingle manufacturers website for details/instructions on how to install the flashing.

Good Luck!
