    Default Metal Roof - Standing Seam

    Okay...i'm having brain dump today. It's been several years since I've had to inspect a metal roof...just a quick double check with you....screw fasteners are not allowed on top of the standing seam or on top of the rake edge flashing, correct?

    Not sure about "not allowed", but they shouldn't be needed on the standing seam parts. For the rake edge, I'm not getting a visual image of how else it would be fastened to the roof. If they used the typical "pro panel" screws with the rubber washer, I wouldn't be too concerned about it. I don't see it would be any different than the more typical metal panel roof.

    Are you sure it is a standing seam roof?

    With screws into the top of the 'standing seams' is sounds more like you may be describing a ribbed roof panel or V-crimp roof panel.

    As Jim said, the rake edge closure/flashing is typically secured with screws, some along the top only (they hook over cleats or clips along the side), some along the top and side, and I think I've even seen some fastened along the side (those hooked over cleats or clips along the top).

    This is one form of standing seam with concealed fasteners.

    The OP might have meant this as Jerry suggested.
