Tower Clock Dormer Flashing

These roofers are replacing the hips and valleys around the clock dormer with 20 ounce cold rolled copper and would like to remove as few slate as possible. At the main tower side of valleys, it was not necessary to remove any slate, as the pitch of the roof was steep enough that it only had to go up the wall 4 inches. It slid behind the slate very nicely and was waterproof with some bibbing (note: a bib being a small sheet of metal slid behind an opening between slates to cover a nail or other opening). On the dormer side of the valley, the pitch was lower, and it was necessary to run the valley a little further under the slate. A few nails were encountered and had to be removed with the Stortz 84-A Durable Model ripper. This is the lighter model ripper (but still very rugged), better suited to work in the air. For trimming and cutting slate at the site, a slater's stake was driven into the hip board at a convenient height (the old copper hip having been removed).
