Incorrectly Installed Metal Roof on Sevierville Cabin. Upon our initial inspection, it was obvious what was wrong with the roof and why it was leaking inside. The trim metal they used on the gables was gable metal, and normally this would have been the correct trim metal to use. But this gable isn’t straight. It goes up at a steep angle, this angle lets water build up under the edge of the roof. This has rotted out all the fascia boards and has caused leaks in the cabin.

In these pictures, you can see that the trim metal we used goes under the metal roofing, allowing water to go down the roof, out onto our drip edge, and off the roof, versus down the roof and under the other metal.Go To Pin
