Before getting started, there is one thing to note. Whether installing metal, or asphalt shingles, felt paper is first applied over the roof boards, align first piece of felt paper with bottom edge of roof and extend full length. Attach using a staple gun or roofing cap nails. Apply second course of felt paper full length and overlap using the overlap line found on the felt paper. Repeat the process of attaching felt paper to roof. [BLANK-AUDIO] With a couple courses of felt paper applied, it's time to fasten the optional installation purlins. Get the first layer of purlins against the gable fascia board and align lowest purlin with bottom edge of roof. If additional layers of insulation are used to increase the R value, place additional purlins flush with outer edge of gable trim.

Space purlins two feet apart. To ensure a consistent space between purlins, cut a two foot long 2 by 4 to use as your spacer when placing the purlins. Repeat the process of adding felt paper and purlins moving toward the top of the roof. [BLANK_AUDIO] When reaching the top of the roof, the last purlin must align with the top edge of the roof. The space between the second to last, and last purlin will not be two feet. This is okay. The insulation panel can be cut to fit. Measure and cut lengths of purlin to fit between ends of purlins and inside edge of gable trim. Nail in place so purlins extend from gable to gable. Now that the purlins are attached to the roof, or if optional insulation packages not used, align L trim with bottom edge of roof and extend one half inch beyond gable on each end.

Nail L-trim in place every 12" from gable to gable on both sides of the roof When applying multiple lengths of L-trim, overlap pieces 1". With L-trim installed, it's time to install the insulation and metal roof panels. Using a table saw, cut insulation board to fit between purlins. Place insulation board from bottom to top of roof, then attach first roof panel. When installing the first metal panel, locate edge of panel flush with edge of gable trim. Allowing 1" over hang at bottom roof edge. It would block and be used to assist in aligning the panel edges. Continue to add insulation and metal roof panels. When adding additional roof panel, lap first rib of previous metal panel and newly added panel Attaching our lower channel and in each purlin moving towards the top of the roof.

The last metal panel will need to be cut so that it is flush with the outside edge of the gable trim. Measure required panel width allowing for rib lap to outside edge of gable trim. Measure panel and score along the measurement line, then bend the excess metal of the panel along the score line. Now that the metal panels are installed, it's time for the raking corner and ridge cap installation. When installing the raking corner, start the bottom of the raking corner one half inch past the bottom of the roof edge. At the peak, cut the raking corner so it is flush with the edge of the opposite roof line. Fasten bottom edge in the gable trim, every 12" using roofing screws. Fasten top edge in the purlins on roof top. Cut the raking corner for the opposite roof half and overlap as shown. Again, fasten bottom edge, in the gable trim, every 12" using roofing screws. Fasten top edge, in the purlins on roof top.

Now that the rake and corner is installed, it's time for the ridge cap. To start the process, center a ridge cap on the peak of the roof. Strike a line along the ridge cap edge on each side. These lines will be used to locate and apply a self adhesive closure gasket. Using the pencil markings as a guide, apply the self-adhesive closure gasket to full length of the roof just above the pencil marks on each side of the roof. Now it's time to install the ridge cap. Center ridge cap and extend past roof edge. Approximately 1". Extend 1" on each end of roof. Install ridge cap the entire length of roof overlapping each length approximately 6". Greater overlap lengths can be used if there's an excess of ridge cap material. Screw ridge caps outer edge through gasket, and into metal roof ribs. At the conclusion of this last step, you're ready to move on to the next stage.

Before getting started there's one thing to note. Whether installing metal or asphalt shingles, felt paper is first applied over the roof boards. Align first piece of felt paper with bottom edge of the roof and extend full length, attach using a staple gun or roofing cat nails. Apply second course of felt paper full length and overlap using the overlap line found on the felt paper. Repeat the process of attaching felt paper to roof. With a couple course of felt paper applied, it's time to fasten the optional insulation purlins. Pat the first line of purlins against the gable fascia board and align lowest purlin with bottom edge of roof.

If additional layers of insulation are used to increase the R value, place additional purlins flush with outer edge of gable trim. Space purlins two feet apart. To ensure a consistence base between purlins, cut a two foot long two by four to use as a spacer. when placing the purlins. Repeat the process of adding felt paper and purlins moving towards the top of the roof. When reaching the top of the roof , the last purlin must align with the top At the edge of the roof. The space between the second to last and last purlin will not be 2 feet. This is okay. The insulation panel can be cut to fit. Measuring cut lengths of purlin to fit between ends of purlins the and inside edge of gable trim. Nail in place so purlins extend from gable to gable. Now that the purlins are attached to the roof, or if optional installation package is not used, align L-trim with bottom edge of roof, and extend one half inch beyond gable on each end. Nail L-trim in place every 12" from gable to gable on both sides of the roof. When applying multiple lengths of L trim, Overlap pieces 1".

With all trim installed, it's time to install the insulation and metal roof panels. Using a table saw, cut insulation board to fit between purlins. Place insulation board from bottom to top of the roof, then attach first roof panel. When installing the first metal panel, locate edge of panel flush with edge of gable trim. Allowing 1" overhang at bottom roof edge. A wood block can be used to assist and align the panel edges. Continue to add insulation and metal roof panels. When adding additional roof panel, lap first rib of previous metal panel and newly added panel, attach in the lower channel, and in each purlin moving towards the top of the roof. The last metal panel will need to be cut, so that it is flush with the outside edge of the gable trim. Measure required panel width allowing for rib lap to outside edge of gable trim. Measure panel and score along the measurement line. And then bend the excess metal along the scoreline. Now that the metal panels are installed, it's time for the raking corner and ridge cap installation. When installing the raking corner.

Start the bomb in the raking corner. One half inch, past the bottom of the roof edge. At the peak, cut the raking corner so it is flush with the edge of the opposite roof line.

Again, fasten bottom edge into gable trim 12" using roofing screws. Fasten top edge in the purlins on rooftop. Now that the raking corner is installed, it's time for the ridge cap. To start the process, center ridge cap on the peak of the roof. Strike a line along the ridge cap edge on each side. These lines will be used to locate and apply self-adhesive closure gasket.
