I am building my daughter a play house the roof will be 8 foot high with a slight slop to allow for water run off it will be 12 foot x 12 foot i want to use the ribbed metal roofing if possible. my question is how do i seal off the rib part that will be at the top of the roof so rain does not get between my wood roof and metal roofing do they make like a cap or something . thank you
The manufacturer of the metal panels will also have foam closure strips and metal ridge cap pieces available [usually 10 feet in length]. There are two styles of foam closure - typically a person requires both - at the eave edge and at the peak/cap.
At the eave it goes under the panel and fills the small semi-round void and is about an 1/8 inch thick the rest of the way.
At the peak it is the reverse. 3/4 of an inch thick for the space between the panel profile and about an 1/8 inch thick where the rounds are.
Make sure you get wood grip screws and also stitch screws. The stitch screws are for metal to metal for the sheet laps and the cap flashing.
Hopefully this helps.
