Nope, although I mostly shop Do-it and Cochez. What do you need it for?

 

Thanks, I'll make the rounds in David.

 

It's the missing link when integrating flat surfaces and corrugated panels as depicted in the attached photo.  Unfortunately it's not commonly used here.  The hunt continues!

Back in the states they made foam "closure strips" that matched the profile of the corrugated panel, Every place that sold the corrugated panels sold closure strips, this made for an air tight and weatherproof seal. Are you sure they do not have something similar here? The foam strip were about $1 each and very effective, and would make a better seal than the wood.

I bet a local carpenter can make the product. Give him a piece of the scalloped roofing to use as a pattern.

 

There's a special scroll saw that can do patterns, if anyone has one of these, making these would be a snap.  I thought about checking with the pallet and crate guy in Alto, perhaps he's got something along those lines or would know who would.

Yes, I've seen the foam ones back in the states.  Since I'll be painting these the material is irrelevant.  I'm also considering using 2" x 2" foam rubber if i can find that economically.

 

I will find out in the next couple of days.

Lack of roof to wall flashing is funny. I have built in the most exclusive areas in the US, for billionaires. Panamanians don't know how to build!

I'm sorry to report that none of the home improvement centers carry this trim, Hopsa, Cochez, Franklin Jurado, Novey, or Doit.

It is not a trim, but a gasket or shut off for insects, bats, lizards, birds, etc
