Metal roof and hardieplank siding...


Recommended Posts

I recently had a double standing seam acrylic coated galvalume roof installed on my new house. There were a couple hiccups during the installation but aside from a minor leak around a skylight everything seems to have come out okay.

Inspecting the roof yesterday I noticed that the roofers had cut beneath the hardieplank siding to slide the metal beneath. I understand that this was to keep rain from getting into the wall under the siding but there is a gap left between the metal and the hardieplank leaving the bottom edge of the siding exposed...

(see attached photo)

Might this present any future problems - water, pests, etc, and if so what would be the best way to remedy it?
