Our team at Tri County Metals can provide you with information about:
Does your home or building have a porch or areas with different roof pitches that may necessitate transition flashing?
What is the metal roof going to be used for, exactly? A house, shed, barn, or siding for example.
You should start by drawing a top-down perspective of your roof. The drawing should be large enough that you can write down the feet and inches of each separate line. Writing down these values is the most important thing, not that the drawing is to scale!
Are there one or more chimneys on the house? Gather the measurements for them.
Aside from chimneys, are there any other roof penetrations to note? Your building may have plumbing pipes or stove pipes, for example—what are their diameters?
Is there an existing layer of singles you plan to install the metal roof over?
Do you intend to use 1x4 purlins, or install your metal roof over synthetic underlayment?
Do you have an attic? You may be planning to vent the ridge in order to allow hot air to escape. Is the soffit vented?
Have you considered whether you’ll want to add insulation beneath your new metal roof?
