How would I install a hip roof with a flat top? The detail around the perimeter of the top is what I’m concerned about. I wouldn’t want it to be very conspicuous. I wouldn’t want a flashing and I don’t thing a hip shingle would work with the drainage plane. I don’t think lapping torch down over the top edge would look to good either.
It’s a weird deal. Basically, it’s a covered porch hip/gable with a well and a drain. My idea was to add some joists and make the top of the hip roof flat but now I don’t think thats too great either.
BTW the client wants to do single ply PVC for the well because he can “get some from work” I didn’t think asphalt and PVC played well together. I think this guy is an architect so he’s a PITA.
