I have 12x16 slate and 8x10 step flashing (4x4x10).

Just to make sure I'm not doing anything wrong, it appears as though if I am to fasten the flashing to the roof deck (which I am told is the way to go), I will be nailing the flashing though the slate.

Am I correct?

No. You should not be nailing the step flashing through the slate. Either make the step flashing a little longer so you can nail it to the roof deck, or nail it to the side wall.

Much Thanks Joe. I made a side elevation drawing of the slate and the step flashing just now and it now makes perfect sense. I knew all along that I was supposed to weave the flashing between the courses of slate but I had my mind focused on maintaining a specific vertical overlap of the flashing.

I see now that I can just install the step flashing such that it ends up centered on the slate above it. That gives me a 3-1/2" vertical flashing overlap.
