Generally speaking, here we will show the process on a simple gable style roof with a patio low slope. It starts with preparing the underlayment. The builder on this job requested ice and water shield they provided.

What’s Metal Roofing – Roll Forming?

This is a cool process as one can see where the coil or the flat sheet metal is ran through the machine where its formed into the desired profile the customer selects: flat panel, double rib, or striated.

At this point, the roof should be ready and prepared for installation. The perimeter trim, valleys, and wall flashing is then installed. The first panel is the most crucial installation as it sets the pace for the rest of the panels.

All standing seam metal panels are then secured and have clips/cleats installed at approximately every 18 inches. These metal clips are the ones holding the panel down.

After, the eave detail work is performed. This consist of trimming the ends of the metal panels and hand bending the panels to the perimeter DL or drip edge. As the panels are being installed, we will run into pipes and other protrusions.

This detail work is completed as we go through the roof and make sure all is waterproofed before moving to next panel.

All penetrations are painted to match the roof color once the roof is 100% complete.

The seaming of the panels is probably the coolest and the one customers like the best. Its a neat and simple process, it intrigues everyone. The joints or seams of the panels are bent and seamed with an electrical robot seamer. This little guy is a life saver! Beats doing it by hand.

One of the final steps is installing the z-bars, hip-caps, and ridge-caps.

This film is left on till we are complete.

On this metal roofing project, we fastened the caps with matching color rivets.
