My new roof is a clip metal type. I have 1 seam that is raised 1/4" above the run of the downstram panel. My contractor says this "normal". I'm worried that the wind will raise the panel and have water enter roof.

Interesting. Did you ask them about putting a screw in the raised seam to hold the two together?

That's probably a normal thing that contractor does. As far as putting a screw in it, come on Todd that's sub par. Contact the manufacture and find out what they suggest I bet that's not the way to end lap that panel. On some panels you can make relief cuts and end lap them, but it doesn't look like the case with that style.

I like the idea of checking with the manufacturer. The picture supplied makes it difficult to tell exactly what has been done. I still stand by that, if what has been done must be done, a short grommeted zip screw sideways into the seam may be the best thing that can be done.
