I am installing a ABC metal roof over wood. I am installing rake trim that overlapes into the metal roofing panels and secured there with tape and screws. My question is this... Does the metal ridge cap trim overlap the rake trim?... if so how much? Is the ridge cap trim left open at the overlap? manufacture doesn't specify in this area and no help when i emailed. Thank you for any help? Al

the ridge cap should extend past the rake trim by 1"- 2" use trypolemeur to seal any cracks or wholes
