That is your rake (gable) trim. I believe technically it should be lapped >4", in reality >2" is fine. Like the no-caulk pipe boot, it is beyond me why anyone would think butting it would be acceptable.

If there is a layer of 30# felt between the WIP100 and the metal, does that solve all of the issues with having WIP100 under metal? Is felt a viable solution for WIP100 under standard seam metal roofing?

I think that is the gable trim (flashing) should be overlapped not butted.

Yes it's better than the ice/water. Ideally you want something that won't stick to it but it's better than the sandpaper.

The errors that were made were some very common entry level knowledge.You could probably read " Metal Roofing For Dummies " and still put out a better display of "Craftsmanship" than that.

It makes one wonder what craftsmanship they put out on a shingle roof ?

I sent an email to the contractor with pictures and a list of my concerns. I dont want to have my warranty nullified because they used the wrong underlayment. Maybe the roof will be ok with the felt in between the WIP100 and the metal. But I feel it is doomed if they dont fix the trim and replace the panels that are scratched to hell. Im just really disappointed overall. I am a first time home buyer that spent 3 months interviewing 5 different contractors for the job and it still turned out crappy.

Thanks all again for the information and advice.

It is unfortunate that these things happen from time to time in every trade and just about every place imaginable.

From your roof,stores,mechanics,insurance,Shoes you name it there are risks.But good news for you,,,not every contractor is like that.It happens.You spend your time an effort into choosing what you felt was the best choice only to get burned.

It might not be a roof but I took one of my trucks into a mechanic a couple days ago that I heard was great and I checked him out and felt comfortable with taking my truck.Well long story short it costed me $2800.00 and now I need a new rear end in a work truck.

I hope they have the integrity to hear your side and see the errors and make it right for you.Good luck.
