Advantages of installing drip edge after the roofing underlayment has been installed, are as follows: You do not waste any precious time during the installation of the drip edge; when and if your roof is open and it rains, you may not have enough time to cover it, that’s where having water and vapor barrier in place really comes handy. Second reason is the safety. When I install underlayment, first I can trim the edges as I please, in case that a hang off portion of the roof is too lengthy. If your drip edge is already in place, and underlayment hangs off of it, trimming it may be rather dangerous, while sitting on the edge of the roof. Lastly – it really does not make much difference in terms of performance. A properly installed metal roof will keep the water out, and the only water on the underlayment will be condensation. If rain water does get onto the underlayment after a metal roof has been installed, then you have bigger problems to worry about!

Using heavy duty steel screws or 3″ framing nails with a double head for easy removal, install your roof anchors over the ridge, so each “ear” of the anchor is located on different side of the roof. Best way to install it, is to find roof rafters and put your nails into them. This will give you the best hold-down on the roof.
