Preliminary Remarks

The present booklet contains 4 selected instruction examples which are exclusively related to eaves flashings. Making of eaves flashings requires work on site and in the workshop as well.

The Instruction Examples 3.1. and 3.2. have been selected so that practising of the examples can be done separately or successively, one based on the other one.

Instruction Example 3.3. includes the calculations necessary for making the templates required for an eaves flashing to be made on a roof structure to be built.

Example 3.4. explains the sequence of operations in template making for re-proofing of buildings.

The necessary materials, machines, hand tools, measuring and testing means and auxiliary accessories are specified for each example to facilitate the preparation and execution of the work. Moreover, the previous knowledge, which is necessary in addition to knowledge of the technique Making of Roof Flashings, is also stated for each example and should be recapitulated at the beginning.

The order of working steps given in the sequence of operations is to be followed, in order to achieve good quality of work.

A working drawing showing the required shapes and dimensions is also attached to each example.

The working drawings 3.1. and 3.2. are required for the first two examples.
