Aprons and Cleats on Slate Roofs

 

A slope transition on a slate roof plane often requires a transition flashing, sometimes called an apron.

A slope transition on a roof plane often requires a transition flashing, sometimes called an “apron.” The flashing is folded with a Z bend to compensate for the angle of the slate on the upper half (making a cant strip unnecessary), and is nailed along the top edge, then held down along the lower edge with cleats, as shown.

Dimensions vary, but 16 inch copper stock is shown used above.
