Pointers? Quit being so modest. That's some outstanding work!

Looks like you've got a good start.

search for Copper Development Association, look into the details pages
check out Copper Exclusive .com
Take a look at the post by Kurtis in thread -Sheet metal talk, Fun with origami paper
And there is a post at SlateRoofCentral forum "coppper,copper,copper"
And there is a book "Copper and Common Sense"

Thanks for the info!I will look those up.The C.D.A. is where most of my training has come from.I just find some of their specs to be a lil over the top.But I will look into your other suggestions.

Good pattern work. Looks like some decent soldering too. Need to learn to put those seams / panels together right, though! The (flat lock) panels look HUGE.

I would have loved to done the flat lock in smaller panels.But the home owner wanted it that way because the previous roof was done in 4x8 sheets.My boss didnt help matters much because he told them it would be less labor to do the bigger panels.But carrying a panel that big 45 feet in the air is no easy task.lol

I HATE to complain (the work looks pretty nice) but It looks as though you took a brick wall and put some kind of White Caulk to seal where you meet the brick wall. We take and bend a piece of counter flashing cut the mortar out of the joint and replace it when the counter is in. Looks better to me. dupree

No it is recessed into the mortar.Its just when the mortar has been cut out .5 inches wide originally other than putting more mortar back in which they usually dont want to pay for you have to use something.And if you notice there are no exposed fasteners on the counterflashing so how would you think it is holding so tight?I dont half ass the cut it and step and nail and caulk it.I dont mean to come off as pissy but I have been doing this for awhile and to make assumptions that I dont know what the standard size panel for a flat lock panel or properly installed counter flashing is almost more insulting than anything.Sorry to waste anyones time but I dont need info that any first year sheet metal worker should know.Have a nice day!
