I have a problem I need advise on. I am ready to replace a very old roof. The roof butts up to the main part of the house. The main part of the house has concrete walls, the add on has a wooden roof. How is the best way to seal the joint between the roof and the wall?? My 1st thought was to make a channel in the wall and place an angled flashing after the roof is done......Please Help!!! THANKS!!!!!

I'm not a contractor or roofer, but you are on the right track.
Use a masonry blade in a circular saw, and saw a kerf in the concrete wall just above the wooden roof.
If the wooden roof is attached straight across, you can use roll flashing in single strip, bent into a Z to fit into the kerf, and over the new roofing shingles, and sealed underneath with plastic roofing cement. Nail the flashing to the cement wall with masonry nails, and cement a row of shingles over the flashing on the wood roof to hide it.
If the wooden roof is angled, I would do basically the same thing, but with step flashing.
Good Luck!
