This isn't a weekend warrior installation. Unbelievably, it's new construction. I swear this is not Photoshopped.

If the cricket and the valley it creates are covered in IWS and that is a real W valley pan with edge dams it should work just fine. If not it's screwed, the cricket looks way to shallow a pitch for standing seam without a membrane under it.

An open valley with soldered flat lock seams would be better, but it would be just as ugly. Even a custom pan would look goofy, and most roofers wouldn't be able to fab it anyway.

You don't have a problem with the water being trapped, Tom?

That's the most idiotic roofing detail (both design and installation) I've seen in a long time.
