How to seal Patio roof.

I have a corrugated metal patio roof. It is butted up against my house next to my house roof. How can I seal the crack between the two roofs?

You would need to use a combination of foam top closure and metal flashing. The foam closure acts like a gasket to conform to the shape of the corrugated roof. The flashing caps the foam closure and might be bent down over the top of it to trap the closure in place.

I would start by googling foam closure. If you have a lumber yard go there and ask them to order it for you.

Seems like I saw some at Lowes awhile back. It should be available most anywhere they sell the corrugated metal.
