If the first panel isn't straight none of panels will be straight. Most roofers will try and twist the panels into possession. Which will make you roof oli can. What is oil caning ? Well it looks like a car wrecked. crunchy.
Water runs down hill. Make sure you understand this before installing a roof." Common mistakes" MAKE METAL WORX YOUR WATER FLOW TECHNISHIONN !
It sounds crazy but it is a big difference useing a metal roof over a shingle roof in your cooling cost for your home or business. Thanks to the new energy star paint.
I recommend using a barrier between the old roofing and new metal roofing. using either a conventional tar papper or synthetic underlaymant.
When I cut metal roofing I never use a saw it burns the galvanizing off and the panel will rust where it was cut.
I like to use a clear new pair of shoes when walking around on a metal roofing. Believe or not skateboarding shoes seem to work the best.
This week we are installing corrugated metal in a custom bathroom. I can't wait to see the finished product. I will have some pictures later this week.
It is a good idea to have a experienced metal roofing contractor install your roofing. It is very disappointing to me to see how many contractors that don't care about quality. They will hire guy's with little to no experience pay them peace rate which means by they get paid by how fast they are installing. I am seeing a lot of jobs with really bad workmanship. Even as a small business that buys material direct it is hard to complete with these type of contractors that cut so many corners. A good example is trim drip edge, gable and ridge cap installation. It can take year's to train a guy on how to install these peaces and it takes a lot of skill and time to install each piece so it look nice. How can this be achieved by a unskilled installers that is paid by how fast they go ? Answer is it just can't. Over the year's I have meet many homeowners that think they can just throw a metal roof on there selves and save some money bad idea. In fact I have been asked on several occasions by other roofing contractors to come out and train them and there employees on how to install metal roofing properly. To me that is ridicules of them to think I can just come out in a day and show them how it is just not possible. It can take several years just to show a guy how to cut without having the product looking butchered and a lot of times guy's just never figure it out. I can go on and on about installation and how it is important to have a experienced installers not only to install nice looking trim but also a nice looking roof. Here is a few things a roofing contractor do to be low bid. Buy inferior products instead of giving you a 45 year product they buy a 10 year and you can't tell the difference until it is to late. Trim is also sometimes left out and not installed at all. Trim is a big deal not only the time to install it but also the cost of it can be about 30-40 percent of the material cost. Here at metal worx roofing I only install high end product that will look great for many years to come. Installation is done by me. In 1994 when metal roofing was just starting to become more popular my dad started installation of metal roofing and aventually dumped his shingle line all together now in 2015 over 30 year's later we have become some of the best installers not just in are region but in the world.
