Drip edge installation question with pictures

I just had an Ideal Americana metal roof installed on my barn. I am concerned about the drip edge installation on the project. Two of the edges are installed under the metal panels, while the other two are installed over the panels. I was told this is because of how the panels ended on the roof. All drip edges come out rather far. I have taken pictures of the installation: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157618332052557/ Can anyone tell me whether this is a correct installation? I couldn't find a definitive answer on the Ideal website. Thanks!

That is not correct, the metal used on the gable ends looks like it's eave metal to be used at the gutter line. The ag gable we make has a 1/2 inch drip edge with a 5 1/4 face x 4 1/4 top with a 1" inch leg that drops 135 degrees and a 1/2 leg also at 135. that enables you to go over top of the rib and screw it down through the 1/2" flange and through the face. Or the manufacture can make a special gable if needed on their brake. Your contractor just doesn't have much experience in metal plan and simple

So the drip edge used is incorrect? Is placing the drip edge over the panel incorrect as well? I am on the website, and I am only seeing one "Steel Roof Drip Edge #414". Is that was was used here? Should I email the pictures to Ideal directly as well?

Yes, I really suggest contacting Ideal to get their take on it. Who is to really say what is "correct" other than the manufacturer.

The flashing that should have been used on the gable ends is #411, #414 is eave trim as specified by the manufactures website. So as I said before they used the wrong flashing's.
