Had a metal roof installed contractor took 11 mths to complete, have water damage prior to completion. I am not sure it is done correctly. I want a 3rd party inspection of the installation with a written report of any deficiencies in installation. Contractor was suppose to install ridge vent on 90 ft of ridge can only confirm about 20 ft of ridge vent. Corners of roof don't look right to me open at ends no boxing out of end caps. Partial sheets installed and over lapped looks like they ran out material and patched pieces together. Is it possible to vent the eave ends to allow air to circulate under the metal roof.

Unless the panels are installed on battens, there is not much opportunity to vent directly underneath of the roof. I would suggest contacting the manufacturer of the roofing to see if they can send someone to do an evaluation of the install quality.
