Trim the cone of the Dektite flashing to suit the flue pipe using sharp tin snips, not a knife. Lubricate the flue pipe with water and slide the Dektite soaker flashing down the pipe and form to suit the roof profile. Mark the outline of the soaker on the roof and then remove it. Mark a gap allowance of 30mm (on the inside of the original mark). Now determine where the soaker sides will finish.

* Remove all roof inside the 30mm line. Trim off any sharp or uneven edges. Timber supports must be installed to support the roof where the ribs have been removed. (the flue pipe has not been included in the picture above for clarity) Replace the soaker flashing in position and apply silicone sealant to the edge of the roof while holding the flashing up. Fix self-tapping and self sealing screws to the middle front and middle back of the soaker and fix progressively towards the edge.
