Hi there,
Currently Iam doing a small project on the house,Iam putting a roof over my side passage with plastic corrugated sheeting. due to the house being not parallel to the adjacent fence and changing direction twice I need to create a small 'flat roof' felted area to keep the distance constant down the length of the new roof (hope you follow)

For half of the length of the roof though I need to flash it to the house (the other half I have tucked the felt under the fascia board),my question is, can I cut a chase in the brickwork and tuck in felt then repoint rather than buying a load of lead flashing? It will probably be a 2 metre length and being the side passage of the shed doesn't receive much direct rain.

Any opinions welcome

Phil

The first layer should be stuck to the wall but stop short of your raggle. The top layer goes into the raggle. Try to cut the raggle slightly upwards into the wall rather than straight in or downwards.

If it's roughcast you're supposed to remove it below your raggle so you have a flat surface to felt.
