    Hi All,
    I am in the throws of building a full dormer on the house.
    Standard ugly looking thing
    Will be plain tile hung to all sides with EPDM and warm roof.

    Two , or maybe more questions...

    I can not find any details about flashing AND soakers for a plain tile dormer cheek. I have come to the conclusion that no flashing is required as the tiles should prevent water getting behind the new lead soakers against the cheek walls. Am i missing something?

    Also I hadn't though about how to finish the fascia and sofit into/onto the roof where it meets the sloping roof,ridge and chimney. Epdm will be dressed over with check kerb to sides but what is the the correct method of taking the EPDM to the ridge at that point. I am assuming i need to cut the EPDM?

    Thanks!

    you do not need a flashing to the cheeks, soakers are fine. You do of course need a front apron flashing , make sure the corners are formed correctly and the soakers empty onto it.
    Do not forget trays under the windows ..

    Thanks for reply and info. Do you have an explanation of the connection between the cheek fascia and soffit with the top of the pitched roof and ridge? Will this also need lead or do I take the rubber over ridge and tape the corner?

    Lead Saddle is the best option.
