CORNICE & FLASHING

Metal cornice and flashing is not only beautiful but highly functional. Flashing, like in the picture above, helps channel water more effectively and directionally than any other type of roofing. When combined with a slate roof, the result is a timeless product that will last generations. Cornice is a bit more visually pleasing than functional.  It effectively replaces the traditional boxing on a home where the roof overhangs the side of your home. In the picture below, the homeowner elected to go with a lead-coated copper cornice to not only match his gutters but to create an absolutely maintenance-free exterior feature.

In this picture you can see the copper flashing in the valleys of the roof.
