Flashings and Cappings are used to cover exposed ends or joints in your roof or façade. They need to be robust enough to be impervious to the elements, and flexible enough to move with the flexing of your building. And most important, they must do this throughout the life of your roof or façade.

So if you’re looking for an attractive long-term solution, you have two problems. First, you’ll need precisely folded flashings to fit. And second, you’ll need to be meticulous in the installation of these products.
