Eaves Flashing

Gutter eaves flashings are not required for weatherproofing unless the building is in a very exposed location and the eaves are not protected by spouting. They can serve a purpose in many applications of improving the durability of roofing at the eaves (see Durability).

The flashing should extend into the gutter, and the underlay finishes on the down-slope of the flashing. If there is no over flashing to the gutter, the underlay should be extended into the gutter by a maximum of 20 mm.

Unwashed flashings should be made of durable materials such as organic coated steel, aluminium, or PVC.

Eaves flashings as referred to in E1/AS1 are not required for weatherproofing unless the eaves are unprotected by spouting, but they can make a contribution to durability. (See 3. Durability)
