What’s its purpose?
Sure, gable trim makes the roof look more appealing since it is one of the finishing touches to conceal the edge of your panels on your home or building BUT it offers so much more than that: HOME DEFENSE
Rain can blow in any direction; we can all agree that the sole purpose of a metal roof is to have the most durable and long-term coverage on your home. If there are openings for things to get under your panels, such as water, debris, or even critters then what’s the point?
Capping off the ends of your panels with gable trim seals off that opening and shuts down the opportunity for anything unwanted to invade your roof deck. Without the proper flashing in these areas your home has this to look forward to:
- ceiling leaks
- interior damage
- moisture damage
- mold growth
and you, the homeowner, can look forward to this:
- expensive repairs
- possible health issues due to mold
avoid all of this by using the proper trim!
