Tools Required for Metal Roof Installation

How to Install Metal Roof Instructions

  1. For 1st sheet: put metal roofing wood screws on every 2 feet on center and inside of sheet. 2nd sheet should overlap 1st, and if it is V-Crimp, 1 crimp will overlap sheet beneath. If R-panel, 1 ridge will overlap already screwed in ridge.
  2. Pop chalk line every 2 feet across wood slats and use metal roofing wood screws ever 2 feet on both sides of metal roofing.
  3. Continue along roof slope until last metal roofing sheet. Screw in last sheet by trimming where it overlaps ridge and meets closest row.
  4. Install lap screws on both slopes.
  5. Install metal roof trim every 2 inches with 1/2 inch metal roofing wood screws.
  6. Install closures by pushing into openings along edge.
  7. Screw bottom of all metal roofing sheets down.
  8. Install ridge; use 5/16 metal roof lap screws to screw down ridge every 2 feet for R-Panel, and 1/2 metal roofing wood screws for V-crimp. R-Panel will come with a foam enclosure similar to bottom enclosures to fill in wide gaps at top of sheets.
