I am a homeowner about to reroof and paint the exterior of a 1920 Dutch Colonial. I have hired 2 roofers and have 30 year
Certainteed shingles.
My problem is I want to use the lead/copper/lead flashing and
the roofers have no experience with this product. They want to
use aluminum. I also plan to use the butyl (rubber type) of under-
layment in high risk water leakage areas.
Have searched the net and found little useful information, including "This Old House".
Does anyone on this forum have any experience with this flashing or can direct me to a site where I can get detailed info.
on its use? Have even gone to the Copper Association web site
only to find the 4 or 5 manufacturers named.

i don't understand what the confusion use the copper the same way you use aluminum only differance is you have to use copper nails due to chemical differances.comes in a roll, cut whatever length you need bend it to the shape you need-either a trim brake or 2 2x4s and put it up.the ice and water shield is an excellent idea we used to use it all the time when i was up north
