How To Install Metal Roofing Panels
1: Panel installation should began at the gable end of the roof opposite to the prevailing rain bearing wind, this will keep wind driven rain from being forced under the metal panel laps.
2: Measure one panel width in from the roof edge and chalk a line from ridge to eave. Place the leading edge of the first panel along this line. It is extremely important that this panel be laid square to the eave and ridge so that the remaining panels will line up square on the roof frame. It is wise to have a person at the eave and at the ridge to ensure that the proper panel coverage is being maintained across the roof. Be sure that the panels are properly side lapped to ensure a water tight seal.
3: The panels at the eave side of the roof should overhang into the gutters 1 to 1-1/2 inches.If installing metal on a non gutter application you can overhang the panel up to 3 inches.
4: In applications where metal roofing panels are being end-lapped, the upper panel on the slope should always lap over the panel that is lower on the slope. Lower roof slopes requires a greater amount of panel overlap. All end-lapped panels will require two horizontal rows ( across the panel) of butyl sealant tape to ensure a water tight seal.
