How to Install Metal Roofing

  • Take the Measurements of the Roof Area
    Measure the size of the area to be roofed in square feet to ensure you purchase enough roofing materials. You should take the measurements from the top and not from the ground for more accuracy. Ensure to add some little allowance to account for errors during measurement.
  • Order the Materials
    When you are ordering the materials, most stores have standard panel sizes, but you can place a special order to have custom-made panels. Your roofing panels can be customized on aspects such as size and color to complement the color of your house. However, it might cost you a little more to have custom-made roofing materials.
  • Add Insulation
    Reduce the likelihood of moisture damage to your property by adding a layer of insulation using roofing felt before fixing the roof. It is critical to do this for properties in locations that experience extreme weather conditions.
  • Install the Eave Flashing
    The eave flashing adds to the aesthetic appeal of your house by covering the perimeter of your house’s roof. Use 1 ¼ inch nails to securely install the eave flashing to seal it off.
  • Add Metal Panels
    Fix the roofing panels on the sheathing starting with roof parts with the longest straight lines from the peak to the eave using metal roofing screws. Leave a space of about 12inches between screws and ensure alignment when fixing the panels. Avoid overtightening exposed fasteners since doing so will make the rubber grommet snap off, allowing leaks in the house. Remember to leave about ¾ inch of the roofing panel extending beyond the eave. Ensure that all the edges of the roof have been covered by roofing panels to avoid leaks which can destroy your property and necessitate reroofing. Ensure to have the roofing panels overlap at the edges for at least 1 inch for the entire length of the roof to avoid leaks between adjacent panels. You can additionally apply silicone sealant on panel edges to make a water-tight seal.
  • Add the Flashing to the Roof
    Cover the roof joints where metal panels meet using the flashing to protect against rain and snow.
  • Finish
    Ensure that all edges of the roof are smooth and that all roofing panels have been fully fastened to the roof. You now have a roof over your head, and you can enjoy quality time with your family during any weather.
