Gaps at Eaves and Ridge
In order for a metal roofing sheets to be completely weatherproofed, you must seal the gaps that occur under the sheets at the eaves, and between the sheets and the ridge flashing. This can be done using foam filler in the profiles of the sheets. Of course, if you want ventilation, you can leave the foam fillers out.
Filling Gaps in Roof Sheets
An eaves filler strip is designed to go under a sheet, while an opposite ridge filler strip is designed to go over a sheet. All foam filler strips should be bonded to the pans or valleys of the sheeting with a flexible, waterproof silicone sealant and should be continuous over the entire width of the sheeting. This silicone bonding will add an extra layer of protection when filling gaps in roof sheets and, if done correctly, will ensure nothing can get through the gaps.
