Yes, a copper drip edge at the break and then it is started like a brand new roof. the ice guards will do no good on the mansard. Put some on the upper roof though

I have a gambrel roof with a double pitch.

i) My question: what is usually done at the point where the two "slopes" meet? Do I need a starter course again for the new section?

ii) The pitch is quite high for the first section, 12/4 (12 feet drop for 4 feet of travel). Do I need snow guards there as well, or is that unnecessary?
