    Default Metal roof

    I don't see many metal roofs around here. Saw one today with screws not only in the ridges as they should be, but also in the valley, which I wonder about. Is this alright?

    Yes, for some systems.

    I believe they are supposed to be a minimum of 6" (or is it 12") up from the valley end of the panel.

    I wish my Edit would work and not crash my browser.

    However (this is what I wanted to add) ...

    I've always seen performed valleys with the center water diverter used on metal roofing.

    Attached is one detail from one manufacturer, most I have shown the same thing.

    This was leaking everywhere.
    It wasn't hard to figure out why.
