No overhang on steps. Should I be worried?

by Nate

Had flagstone installed over 2 concrete steps.

Installer did not include step overhangs.
New flagstone matches contour of old concrete steps, but does not include overhangs.
Installation looks great and sealing looks good.
I don't know whether I should be worried about future deterioration and/or water damage due to absence of overhangs.
Also don't know whether I should insist that the newly installed flagstone be removed and replaced with larger pieces in order to produce overhangs.
Would greatly appreciate your advice.
