Guide To Corrugated Metal Roofing Installation
Traditionally, corrugated metal roofing was used in agricultural, industrial and commercial roofing purposes only but it is now being used for residential roofing as well. The quality of corrugated metal roofing has improved over the years and technological advancement have made it rust free.
The process of galvanisation protects the roofing from Corrosion caused due to water and air, making it one of the most durable roofing materials available now. It is the safest option for people living in lighting prone areas. The life span of corrugated metal roof is almost fifty years and it is also non-combustible, weather proof and fire resistant.
How to do Corrugated Metal Roofing Installation
Start by measuring length of the roof ridge so that you can calculate required number of sheets. Average width of corrugated metal sheet is 44, hence you divide the length of roof by this number to get the idea of number of sheets.
The next step in corrugated metal roofing installation is to calculate the number of ridge caps that will be required. Calculate this by measuring the length of the ridges on top of the roof and circumference of the roof. If you divide this number by six, you will find out how many 6-foot ridge caps you will need.
Once you buy the sheets, you can start the corrugated metal roofing installation by placing the sheet at one corner of the roof near roof’s lip. Then, place the second sheet next to the first with first hump of the two sheets overlapping, which will provide the necessary strength. You then need to nail the sheet into place and repeat this process till the bottom row is complete.
Ridge caps must be hanged along the bottom edge of metal sheeting and they should curve over lip of the roof. Nail them into place so that bottom is sealed. Repeat these steps till the entire roof is covered with corrugated metal sheets. While working on corrugated metal roofing installation, you can cut the metal with a sharp utility knife. If you need to cut against the corrugation, it is better to use electric circular saw having carbide tipped blade.
