Splice in installation

Guest User

I am having a metal roof installed and the contractor measured wrong and the panels are 7 inches short, he said he would get a larger ridge vent to cover, but instead he cut a 10" piece to bridge from ridge line onto rest of the 18' 1" panel , is this ok or am I going to have issues later on. Rust or earlier failure for the splice point? Thanks

I hate to say it but this s less than the job you contacted for. I would live with the wider ridge cap but not spliced panels.
