Hey guys, I am putting a "snap tite" roof on a new storage building. Guttering will be installed next summer. What I am not sure on is the over-hang or drip edge. How much should there be, if any??????? Thanks

The codes generally call for a drip edge on any roofing product. Some panels have it built in however the one you mention does not. Best to contact the manufacturer for instructions. If the roof is low slope you will need to tape the connection with butyl tape to stop water from migrating back under the roof metal. A good rule of thumb has been to set the overhang at between 3/4"-1".
