Shed roof

Ok so some of you may have commented on my shed framing thread.

After a few problems along the way but I got all 4 walls up.

Long story short I had to modify some wall heights and forgot to think about my roof angle so Now Im a 2:12 instead of a 4:12.
Its about 6 feet long with a 12 in rise.

What options do I have for a lower slope roof like that?

Also how do you finish the top (High part) of a one peak roof? Do you use a drip edge on top? If I were to use panels like those would I seal around the closure strip?

Foam closure and fascia cap flashing.

Would the cap have to be textured to match the shape of the panels? or just long enough maybe 6" or so that it extends far enough that wind driven rain gets blown up there the one time it happens.

I guess it would be pretty rare given the angle of the roof and stuff.

The foam closure is textured to match the panels. Google foam closure. You have to get the right kind to match your panel profile. There is inside and outside (top and bottom) closure.

I don't see any outside closures just inside ones. I know about the foam and plastic closures. From my understanding the foams are more important in thermal applications.

I built a shed on the lower end of my property that has similar sloped roof. The steel roofing overhangs the fascia about 1.5" and the front overhang is about 16" I think I caulked the bottom of the roofing to the fascia. That was probably 5 yrs ago and the shed has stayed dry.

The strips X suggested would look a little nicer.
