Installing Roofing Corrugated Steel Panels
Calamine ceilings are generally used in commercial buildings and in rural areas such as barn ceilings or sheds. Metal roofing is an alternative to the commonly used roof tiles and can be installed faster and easier than roofs. Corrugated steel panels roof installation is easier on the back and more comfortable to handle than the heavier tiles needed on conventional roofs. Instructions to do this project is, measure the roof ridge to determine how many panels will be needed for the installation. Run a tape measure on the front of the cover and record the measurement.
Divide by the width of the panel to determine how many will be needed for installation. Measure from the top of the roof down to the ridge and divide by six. Which is the height of the corrugated metal roof panels to determine how many columns will be required. Multiply the number of rows by the number of columns to obtain the number of panels that will be needed. Align the first panel at the bottom of the roof near the lip and the hammer in place with 3-inch metal nails. Insert about 20 nails into the humps of the crests spread out equally throughout the panel.

Line of the second sheet is superimposed on the first by an edge and installed in the same way. Set the third piece in place and continue until the entire first row has been installed. Cut the last piece to the size if necessary with a circular saw and a carbide tip. Marcos, where the cut will be made and cut carefully through the piece. Insert the edge cap along the bottom edge of the panel. Bend them over the edge of the roof and secure the 6-foot pieces in place with 40 nails in each cover. Install the second row just above the first in the same exact manner as the previous row and continue until all the steel roof panels have been installed.
Install the ridge panels along the top of the decorative corrugated metal and all the rest of the perimeter in the same way they were installed in the previous step. Tips and warnings: Most corrugated roof panels are 36 to 44 inches wide and 6 feet tall. Installation may vary depending on the manufacturer and the overlap of the rows may be necessary depending on the type of the steel deck panels. Always wear safety glasses when working with a circular saw to help protect your eyes. Be very careful when using a ladder on a roof. Make sure you are on stable ground when it is in use.
