After many discussions about valley flashings on the cedar perfection roof I’m doing with all kinda different people, I decieded to “call” the number on the Cedar Bureau website.
Turns out the NY rep lives about two minutes from me and knows my house. How weird is that?
Anywho…..he was calling me from Wisconson….seems they send him all over the country.
this guy gave me wayyyyyyyy more info than I wanted. After I was done with him I thought my brain was going to explode.
HE had me calling the copper bureau to find out the different thicknesses of copper for different applications and even asked me if I wanted to be on the cedar bureau.
He said that after speaking with me and knowing where I live and what I’m doing that I’d be a perfect candidate.
I told him I thought I could become a brain surgeon faster if I had to know all he was telling me. He laughed.
Anyway….the “one” thing I got out of it that actually helped me was “W” valley flashing.
Looks like a trinagle in the crease of the valley and the more I thought about it that night the more I could see what a great idea it is.
the water flows off the roof in two directions but in my mind it hits that triangle before it can splash up the other side of the valley. Great idea!!!
I call half a dozen roof supply houses and no one has it except one.
$11.00 a foot for 12″ valley.
I flippedddddddd. Dats over a hundred bucks for each 10′ piece just for that triangle in the crease when regular copper V.F costs $35 a piece.
I tried today to make a piece.
No biggie at all….three pieces for the price of one making it myself and not to mention the pieces I made exceed what I was going to be sold already manufactured.
Anyone ever deal with this product or even heard of it before???
My life is my passion!
