Time to get rid of your old roof? Installing a metal roof is a bigger process than other roof installations, such as asphalt shingle, with a lot of moving parts and steps. Keeping track of it all can seem overwhelming.
So you’re a homeowner and planning a DIY metal roofing installation. As you might anticipate, the most difficult part of the job is installing the trim correctly. For this reason, you’re probably looking for the easiest method of installation.
Something as small and simple as screws and fasteners are easy to disregard as a vital component of a construction project. For metal roofs, fasteners make up less than 1% of the total cost of installation, yet they can result in 100% of the roof’s failure. Your roof can fail from broken fasteners, incorrectly installed fasteners, worn out sealing washers, or the simplest of errors: using the wrong screws.
So, you are thinking about installing a metal roof and you don’t have any experience. You are concerned about installing the trim incorrectly because it will cause your roof to leak. As a DIY builder who may not read plans, a written install guide is confusing. That’s why we created a step by step written guide and a video that will make installing gable trim a breeze.
