Tile Wall Detail

This article will show you how a tile wall detail is installed on a tile roof system. Keep in mind there are other methods used depending on what type of wall you are tieing into. In this example the roof detail will be lathed and stucco applied over the top. The roof flashings will be behind the lath and stucco. This is how a new constuction stucco home in Arizona would be done.

Step #1.

Your underlayment is installed and nailed, the underlayment type will vary. Typically a 30# organic felt is used this is the most common.

Next we install a J-pan metal and nail it to the wall over the top of the underlayment this metal allows water to run off the roof.

There are other methods to do wall details as well. This example was used because it’s a common method used in the southwest. Whatever method  you use the principals are all the same. The underlayment always has a flashing over the top.
