Caught in the rain

Guest User
We are putting metal on our home over shingles, we havent finished the ridge yet, however when we finished the night before we only had a chance of rain and now we are going to get a very good amount. There are 2 layers of shingles under the metal. Will it leak badly? Its a 10/12 pitch. Worst case scenario I can go up and felt the ridge for a little protection. Will the screws seal tight to the shingles? Thanks

It's hard to say but I'd say that you are at serious risk. I would suggest tarping or somehow covering the ridge,
