drip edge install question


I am triming out my garage opening with 1x6 hardie trim. The opening is roughly 16ft and my drip edge is 10 ft. How much should I overlap my drip edge and should I put some caulk or silicone between the overlaped drip edges?

I don't overlap them. I butt them together. I cut 3" strip of aluminum that covers the seam and bend it to the drip edge profile. I put 2 small beads of silicone caulk to keep water out of the seam. When you overlap it, the top part kicks out. I don't like the look.
