From The Architect's Corner - Rake Piece

With our Bellaforté products you might have noticed it pictured with an accessory piece capping the rakes of the roof. Because Bellaforté Slate and Shake are single-width tiles, rake tiles are commonly used to hide the cut edge of the tile at the end of a course. I often get asked if you have to use this accessory piece. The answer is no, if you don't want to use the accessory you can use copper or another type of non-corrosive metal along the rakes to hide the unfinished edge.

I have looked at your products but I cannot find the dimensions of rake tiles and other accessories for Bellaforte products.
I would thank you for giving me an e-mail to let me know the size of them.
Thank you.
