Change the direction of the slate and add some frameing in the valley to round it out more. Also most eyebrows I have done the bottom few course of slate fade or stop, before a full course of slate goes over the top. You need to think round but flat.

If you all can access that photo you will see that the mudman was there!

It looks to me that I am going to have to change the direction of the water lines to get a slate only fix.

My other thought; although Im not keen on, is to flash with copper under the slate, much like you would under cedar shake. Holding the original look with the water lines running the wrong way.

Any advice is apprecated.

A picture of what you are repairing would be great to see.

I have a project where I am going to be repairing a eyebrow type dormer.

Outside quarter round ending in a closed valley. Valley is stepped in and not leaking, the round tieing from the valley to the flat of the roof is however.
Having never done one of these I'm hoping someone has a diagram for flashing detail.

Now I have a good amount of knowlege on flashing and am going to be tearing this apart myself, so in theory I will have a templete to work off of.
However I dont want it to fail as the original did after 50 years.

Looking forward to some insight

thanks James
