Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alan49 Suntuf wall connector
The best way to flash from the Suntuf roof panels to the side of the house. I was advised to use the soft foam strips, and then add a flashing over the top of the strips, but this method did not stop water leaks. The pre-formed wall connector is a good fit to the shape of the Suntuf panel and then to the siding of my house. I did add a metal Z strip above the plastic flashing to just under the the next up vinyl siding joint - this will help with the water coming down the side of my house. Note - this wall connector is rigid - it will not spread out or contract to meet your Suntuf roof panel. If you did not use the plastic forms under the Suntuf panel to maintain its shape - the screws will spread your panels out and then this flashing will not fit properly to the Suntuf panel. Plus - be sure to use a sealant.

We built a free standing patio covering off of the back of our house. Since we live in a hurricane prone area, a free standing structure would be far stronger. We were able to put it almost all the way to the house, and then attach these connectors to the fascia of the house to prevent leakage between the house and the structure. This worked like a charm. BUT, you need to pre-drill the holes in the connector to make it easier to attach them to the house. We found that it was best to pre-drill the holes close to the top as opposed to the center of the connector. Also, the pitch of our structure was not quite as steep as the connector, but that really isn't posing a problem.

The original roof panels have been up for some time and they were relaxed and warm. The flashing didn't fit real snug, but I cinched them down with some self-sealing screws. Now it all fits well and leaks are gone.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by derf2 Not good for tying in ashalt roofs
I tried to use this wall connector to connect the new porch to our existing 4:12 pitched roof, it was a no go. It is flexible, but not that much, it would have been quite a strain to bend it the more than 45 degrees required.
So I used a heat gun, and though I did avoid most of the bubbling, I had problems with it bending in the wrong place, and bending unevenly. The problem was too much of it got hot and bendable, because it was so thin, and it was too difficult for me to just get the crack-seem pliable enough to bend without distorting the rest of it. So I wasted two pieces trying to bend it well.
What a shame, this would have been the best solution to tie in the two different sloped roofs, Palram does NOT have a good solution to this common problem, in my opinion.
