You need to be more descriptive Juan.
Dormer. If so, What type.
Shingles are flashed at angle changes in a roof/wall deck.
Step and counter flashing at the interchange.
The siding is 1" above the adjoining roof plain.

The window style will also predict the flashing detail and trim detail at the window opening.
Drip cap is normally the same.

Look and addresses each element. Window - Shingle - Siding and plains.

All the best.

Juan...Google "Insulbrick." I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for, though??
