Our 6-9/16" pan flashing (corners and straights) with the back-rib and removeable 1/2" back-dam comes with a 1" built-in overlap and a built-in drip edge.
What size window or door can the head flashing be used on?
The head flashing comes in 6' pieces, and one piece can easily do a 3' half round. using two pieces you can do up to a 7' diameter. If you have a larger unit to protect simply add more pieces. You seal the joint by applying a foil backed butyl tape.
Is there a right and a left for every product?
No, there are no right and left pieces. all of the pieces are non-handed, meaning they fit both the left and right.
How do you secure the corners and straight pan flashing pieces?
Our pans are designed to be shimmed under the pan itself so that you do not destroy the back dam. after setting your door or window onto our pan, you can shim under the pan with the door or window sitting in it and secure the pan at the same time you nail the window or door to the structure.
How much will it cost to protect a window or door?
A single window or door will cost less than $20 to protect.
Do you recommend straight sections between the corner pieces on all windows and doors?

How does weather out flashing perform in freezing or wet weather?
