Metal Roof Ridge Cap overlap problems
I’ve got a 9 year old metal roof that’s leaking and now I’ve discoverd quite a bit of rotten wood. The problem I believe is because of an impoperly installed ridge cap. My ridge cap has maybe a 1/2″ overlap, no rivets or sealant. And in a lot of instances the the overlapped seams don’t lay flat and leave a 1/4″ space.
What is the proper installation method for the ridge cap overlaps?
I’ve put in a call to the original roofer but in looking at my contract it says 2 year workmanship warranty. So do I have any recourse? Thanks for any info.
THIS PICTURE IS NOT OF MY ROOF!!! Just one I found online that shows what I”m talking about.
