Just had a Classic Rib steel roof installed, The roofer did not install inside closures on the eave end of the panels and I am not sure if he did on the peak either. what are your thoughts and opinions on this matter ? Randy

Randy, as long as he installed a drip edge you will be fine. The ridge on the other hand maybe a problem in driving rains if he did not install the closures.

What about wind driven rain and snow and insects and ice dams allowing water to back up under ridges on the eave end of the panels ?

The eave trim should be ok regarding the rain. Snow dams would be a problem further up the roof, not at the eave. Insects could nest in the open cavities, but I think bugs will find a home in other places around the structure.
