    Q: We are thinking of reroofing and going with a Gerard steel roof. What are your thoughts on installing such a roof over a 20 year old Cedar shake roof without ripping the old roof off as this is what is being suggested by the contractor? Would it be preferable to take off the old roof and install plywood first?
    A: Susan, I would suggest you ask to see the installation guidlines for this particular panel from Gerard. In most residential (I'm assuming this is a home we are talking about) applications a "non-structural" or architectural panel is used. This means that the panel cannot be installed over open framing and it must have a deck of some kind under it to support it. The installation technique this contractor is suggesting would probably have steel channels or 2x4's(these framing pieces are called purlins or sleepers) run across the top of the shakes and then the panels would be run over the tops of these purlins. This would be considered open framing since the panel must span from purlin to purlin with no support between and not suitable ...
    Q: Yes, I emailed JohnsManville a long time ago and received no response yet. Will try YOUR resource provided now, however. I've gotten a lot of 'heat' from The Mom about achieving 'dry-in', ASAP. I've torn the roof off of a first-floor existing structure where this two-story addition passes over it, so her concerns are justified, since we're into thurderstorms daily now, with accompanying 35 mph gusts. We live on a peninsula near the bay, but I'm building to the new code like I was living on the beach as far as my roof is concerned. Speaking of which........we're laying 3/4" tongue-in-grrove 3/4" thick plywood as our first layer on the conventionally-framed 2 x 8 rafters, slope about 5 3/4 - in - 12. Ridge beam is laminated - in - pla...
    A: ZANE BRITT: W O W ! Sounds like you are building a soundproof--temperature proof--pentagon--type first class job for "the Mom". It also sounds as though you are about at a dead load limit and a 24 Ga. ribbed meatal roof is ideal for your situation. There are a couple of RESIDENTIAL METAL ROOF contractors who advertise their specialty. I do not personally know them nor their work but you should call them for price, expertise and references SOON! There is a top notch home in Avila that is a great example of metal roof--well done and I'm sure they or their architect could put you in contact with their applicator. If interested, we are here in Tampa---909-4424 and I could show you the home or perhaps you can call Avila Realty who may be abl...
    Q: Hello, Turn of the century Standing seam. I have just recently purchased a 120 year old historical plantation home in bad need of restoration. I need to put a new tin (galvanized) roof on the main structure, the servants quarters, the kitchen house and the garage. I have been doing all the work my self and it is time to replace sections of the roof. I am looking for a place to purchase raised seam panels of the old style that require manual bending with a series of hand tools. I am also looking for training on how to install this type of roof. I have mastered all the skills needed to renovate old houses but I have never had to install rolled seam roofing. Does anyone know where to buy installation guides, journeymen's hand books, ...

    Q: What is the general impression of doing an overlay with foam on a rough metal roof. I don't want to spend the money on a large roof by re-roofing.
    A: RICK, AT U-HAUL--PHOENIX : Good morning: I admit to being a "bit" prejudiced by my niche business of furnishing a miniature "Z" sub-purlin designed for re-roofing OVER the existing metal roof--no "tear-off", no opening building with ensuing liabilities and the lowest cost way to re-roof and forget about it for the next 30 years. a top job of foam is not "cheap" in the longer run. "things" happen to it. Nation wide we get many calls to furnish ROOF HUGGERS TO GO OVER A FOAM COATED ROOF, some not so long in place. Considering the value of your existing investment and it's future value, a permanent re-roof will more than pay.

    Q: I am currently (along w/family & friends) in the process of building a concrete house with a steel roof. Our roof trusses are in place and the C-Purlin is installed. We have contacted several mfg's for the metal roofing material but have a few questions. How far should the sheet metal extend past the bottom C-Purlin? - Should it fit flush or should it extend a couple of inches past?
    A: HOWDY, TODD : GUTTERS OR NO ? ROOF PITCH ? 2" IN 12" OR LESS OR MORE ? IF NO GUTTERS, IN GENERAL, OVERHANG SHOUD BE 3 TO 4 INCHES. CONGRATS FOR DECISION TO GO METAL. WHEN YOUR FRIENDS AND/OR NEIGHBORS ARE PAYING FOR THEIR 2ND AND /OR 3RD. RE-ROOF, YOURS WILL STILL BE JUST FINE.
    Q: My father has bought a new house a couple of months ago and he put a metal building on it. We filled the inside and outside troths with cement, silconed inside and out, we put tar on the cement that is in the troths, we made a ramp at the front and the back of the building for the water to run off. It rained pretty heavy a few days ago, and after all we did there is still puddles of water in the building. Is there anything else we could do, or is there some sort of waterproofing material we could use that will stick to tar?
    A: Shelly, I'm have no idea what you just said! Are you saying your father put a metal building on his house or on the property his new house sits on? Further are you saying you have poured concrete on both sides of the metal wall panels? Why in the world would you do that? If you can send us some more details or better yet some photos of what you are doing, we might be able to give a more complete answer. If this helps.......... in general (assuming there is no roof leak) when you are getting water on the floor of the building it is because the surrounding ground is stacked above the finish floor elevation, or in times of heavy rain, the water level is flooding above the finish floor elevation. If you have a typical monolithic slab ...
    Q: This is a simple question to which I can find very little agreement in an answer. What is the most simple way to easily cut 29ga. metal ribbed siding/roofing? I know that an abrasive wheel grinder works, but this process uses up abrasive wheels (quickly) and leaves dangerous edges. Kett shears heve been suggested but not everyone agrees. Do you think the newer "twin cutter" (carbide counter rotating blades) offered by Sears may work....I need to cut lengths, widths and angles for gable ends. Suggestions would be helpful..Lou Revelle
    A: Lou, I would contact Swenson Steel Products Co., Inc. 209-537-8988 or visit their website www.swensonshear.com. Sheering will always give you a cleaner, straighter, more consistant edge than any cutting tool out there. Thanks for your question, Dale Roof Hugger, Inc.
    Q: Looking for advice on how best to put composition shingle roof on metal building. Also concerned about sound transmission thru exterior walls for use as a church. Would like to view standard construction details for adding brick exteriors, church windows and doors, fire seperation walls and fireproofing in general.
    A: David, I did a new church building some years ago with pre-engineered framing, plywood decking and shingle covering. I worked out very nicely. The metal building mfg. however will have to work out your specific design loadings. The bay spacing may have to be reduced due to purlin deflection due to plywood & shingle weight plus any wind/snow loadings that apply. Additionally the purlin spacing will also have to be reduced. 24"-30" is typical which works out perfectly for plywood sheeting. Remember 3:12 minimum roof pitch. If you are addiing a steeple don't forget to tell the metal building mfg. because those loads can be significant depending on its base size and height. Also don't forget to tell them you do not want "X" bracing i...
    Q: We are re-roofing an existing standing seam metal roof in our local area. The existing metal roof is insulated. Will be using the "Roof Hugger" - Z spacer for support of the new standing seam metal roof. Between the spacer and new metal roof will place "Ayr-Foil" bubble foil faced insulation, (foil face up). A concern has a been noted about possible condensation and some thought has been given to use a "Cor-A-Vent, Purlin Vent" to ventilate above the "Ayr-Foil". What do you think. Thanks.
    A: Mark, I wish I had a quick answer for you but I don’t have any personal experience with bubble foil so I’m not sure how to handle it. My gut feel is that you may be better to place the foil on top of the old roof. Install the Huggers on top of the foil, ventilate the cavity and install the new panels directly to the Huggers. The Huggers may need additional vent holes in the vertical web since the bubble wrap would tend to fill the space around the rib cutouts but this would be no problem. I would check with your insulation contractor and get their opinion. Dale
    Q: Can you tell me the diffrence in cost between metal roofing on a pre-engineered bldg and Resolite roofing. Also is the life expectancy of the Resolite greater and is how much. This will be a roof replacement on an existing building with no insullation.
    A: Robert, I haven't used Resolite in about 10 years so my pricing is quite dated. I recall it, back then, being about double the cost. There were also some panel length limitations, and I recall a special fastener being used for attachment. I would review your project specifics: Panel span (distance from eave to ridge), the number of endlaps that would be needed. The type of structural steel being attached to (joist, structural steel, metal building purlins)and ask about the coefficient of expansion to make sure there are no movement issues. Check your roof slope verses their recommended minimums. The material is beautiful and comes in several different finishes, textures and colors. I used it in a very hostile chemical enviornment a...
    Q: What is the best tool or shear to cut R panel roofing material with? We have tried a saw blade turned backwards (too much noise and metal particles), a nibbler(didn't cut very well) and hand shears (too slow). We are looking for an electric tool to cut with (cordless or corded). thanks for your help.
    A: Mike, None of the power tools are particularly fast to operate, they are hard to control and thus is is difficult to hold a decent line. I personally think the Swenson Shear make the cleanest cut and although you must cut the panels one at a time it does go pretty fast. Vist them at http://www.swensonshear.com/ and see what you think. Dale Roof Hugger, Inc.
    Q: Are there any long lasting benefits to using a roofing product made with galvalume plus over ordinary galvalume Thanks for you advice
    A: Rick, I'm not sure of all the benefits. Those companies that sell the panels can probably tell you all the details. A couple things I am aware of is 1) You can handle the panels without fear of leaving unsightly marks from you hands. 2) The top clear coating act to protect the galvalume for a period of time thus delaying the process of the material sacraficing itself to the adverse elements. So even if the coating only lasted 5 years it could make a 30 year panel last 35 years. Check with the major panel retailers they should have a more complete answer for you. Dale Roof Hugger, Inc.
    Q: Is there a cost comparisons study for Life Cycle cost for Erie Pa. for asphalt shingles 50 year versus Metal roof 50 Year Warranty. If that is not available what would be any anaylsis of asphalt shingles versus metal roofing
    A: Peter, If you believe for one minute that a shingle roof will be around in 50 years I have a bridge for sale I have just got to show you! I not sure a metal roof will be around that long but we both know if anything will, the metal has the best chance. Metal is simply better able to take the UV rays then any asphalt / fiberglass composite will ever be able to withstand. Realistically I would expect a shingle roof to last 12 - 18yrs depending what part of the country you are in. The farther south you are the less time you have. A properly installed metal roof will be around easily for 20 years and I truly believe 35 years in not unrealistic, again depending on the slope, complexity and atmospheric environment surrounding the roof. ...
    Q: I am considering purchasing a used equestrian metal building, 120' x 250' in Lucas, Texas and relocating it to Abilene, Texas. I have been told that only the frame can be used because the existing screw holes in the siding and roof will never align with the holes in the frame.. therefore I will have to purchase new siding and roofing. Is this true? If I cannot locate the original plans is there a way to get new plans for the permit? How much should I budget for the demolition, shipping, and erection in Abilene? How do I locate someone who is capable of disassembling the building and moving it…? Thanks for your assistance! Del
    A: Del, Move slowly on this adventure. I have seen where it costs more to move and re-erect an existing building than it does to build a new one. Remember you must remove all the sheeting, not so bad on the walls, but the roof is a real problem due to the mastic in the side and end laps of the sheeting. Often the walls can be reused if they are not too faded or banged up but never the roof. You must then disassemble and tag the building structure and sub-structure. Often in equestrian usage there is considerable corrosion in the lower areas of the columns, girts and sheeting unless the building was carefully maintained. To relocate this building you will need to load it on 2 or 3 flatbeds, and haul it about 200 miles. You will ...
    Q: I have a metal building with R-panel roofing material. I had a metal ridge placed on the roof with a bird-guard installed below, to allow for air circulation. The roof panels do not meet at the ridge, leaving ~ a 12 inch gap between them. The ridge cap is ~30 inches wide. My problem is that we have water running into the building at the ridge during rain events. What can I do to prevent/correct this?
    A: Jim, The Roof Panels never do meet at the ridge and with an "R" panel a more typical ridge detail uses a fitted, preformed ridge cap with the same configuration as the "R" panel. 10' long 9"-12" throat ridge vents are then typically installed on top of 10' areas where the ridge caps are omitted. They are sealed to the roof with foam closure strips. Your ridge detail probably uses a flat metal ridge cap with a fiber type closure and in certain wind / rain coditions water will come through. You may want to look at a company called Marco Industries, Inc. www.marcogroup.com that manufactures a combination foam/fiber low profile vent material. This product may help your situtation. There may still however be certain conditions tha...
    Q: WHAT IS THE CORRECT WAY TO SCREW DOWN METAL ROOFING; IN THE VALLEYS OR IN THE RIDGES? I HAVE HEARD ALL DIFFERENT ANSWERS, FROM IT IS ALWAYS ON THE RIDGES BECAUSE THE WATER FLOWS IN THE VALLEYS AND YOU WANT THE SCREW HOLES TO BE ON THE RIDGES... BUT I HAVE ALSO HEARD THAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE VALLEYS. CONFUSED IN KENTUCKY... KATE
    A: Kate, Wish there was an easy answer but it depends on the panel. All panel manufactures have standard attachment details for their individual products. Review them and install them per those drawings because your warranty could be effected. That said on the typical 12" o.c. "R" panel rib the attachment is always in the flat part of the panel except at the panels side laps. In eave, rake, corners, hips and valleys the panels are typically installed with 2 fasteners in each flat. One per flat in the roof field. An "S" wave type corrugated panel will typically attach to the deck or structure through the top of the rib because there is no flat area to attach to and the therefor if the fastener seal is in the bottom of the curve it ...
    Q: Is my metal roofing contractor legally required to put flashing on the pipes on my roof. I had a metal roof put on and got a leak. I realized the pipes on the roof have no flashing on them, only caulk, and what looks like plumbers putty. The contractor is giving me a hard time about putting on the flashing.
    A: Shawn, Your contractor is absolutly responsible. To make it worse what is required is called a "Deck-Tight" or a "Pipe-Master" they are less than $20.00 normally. DO NOT USE LEAD BOOT FLASHING CAPS THEY ARE NOT FOR METAL ROOFS, THEY ARE FOR SHINGLE ROOFS. http://www.trianglefastener.com/brands/pipemaster.asp (paste the above address into your browser). You know it is hard to believe a contractor would risk losing a good customer and more importantly and good referal for twenty bucks. Good Luck, Dale Nelson Roof Hugger, Inc.
    Q: Which is better for the installation of Metal tile roofing, particularly, metal shakes, C-purlins or square tubing? In case of using C-purlins (2x3 in.), what is the minimum or ideal thickness needed to ensure the roof does not get torn off during thunderstorms? Winds here can reach in excess of 170kph. Thanks for your response!
    A: Itron, The question you ask is more complex than it would appear. There is a relationship between the type of structural member you select, the thickness of that member (gauge), the spacing of those parts (IE: 4' o.c., 2' o.c., etc) and the capacity of the panel itself on the members at various spacings. The attachment of these purlins or tubes to the underlying trusses or frames can also affect the performance. A local engineer would be the best person to guide you in these matters (a small investment compared to the cost of the new roof)or perhaps the metal tile folks may have some guidelines and recommendations for the installation of their product. Good Luck, Dale Nelson Roof Hugger,Inc.
    Q: We are working with a skid equipment box that has a flat steel roof. Water infiltration is noticed at the roofing seems. We have tried using a roof patch to seal the seems which only reduced the problem. The roof does not have any pitch and tends pool water up to 1 inch deep. Our thoughts are to use some sort of an overlayment. Another thought is to use the polyurethane foam to build a pitch for the roof. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
    A: John, Below is an interesting video on fixing trailer roofs. I don't have any personal experiece with this type of roof since we do mostly structual steel roofing. Most trailers are very light membrane roofs over some type of deck or a very light gauge aluminum panels. If you can find the original trailer Mfg. it might be worth getting their suggestions. Perhaps this video will help, Copy the address and paste it into you browser. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoBKka1ly88&feature=related Good Luck, Dale Roof Hugger, Inc.
    Q: Good day, My companies’ building is of multiple structures, pieced together over the last 80 years. The last roofing rework has been over 20 years ago and is in need of repair/replacement. I was interested in having a steel roof structure built over top of the 4300 sq ft. building. That way in the future the existing structure could be removed and steel structure be completed under existing steel roof structure. My question is …is this possible or are there unforeseen complications? Thank You, Steve
    A: Yes Steve it is done all the time and any qualified steel building company can handle this change and explain the details of how this is done. That's the good news as they say. More importantly however, you do need to check with your local building department (or contractor) first regarding local codes. This change although not creating any new square footage may trip a number of new regulation enforcements that you are currently "grandfathered" from having to comply with. You may be required to change your setbacks, add parking, add fire protection, modify electrical services, add retention ponds, meet handicap access requirements, and the list goes on. These modifications can be imposed on buildings not even modified. So ask a...
    Q: Hi, I am trying to find what I call old style through fastened metal roofing panels. This is because they are on buildings on our familys farm which are 50 or more years old. Basically, one style looks almost identical to the current 5V CRIMP pattern but it has rounded ribs rather than the 5V's sharp ribs. I prefer the rounded ribs for many reasons but I type too slow to elaborate and also don't want to potentially bore you. Long story short, there must be enough other people like me for there to be a market for these. Therefore, I can't help but think there must be 1: some niche marketer(s) of these that I have been unable to find yet in the internet netherworld. 2: someone who could make these for me (my research has discovered...

    Q: I recently had a 50x100 building consructed. I never went to the roof to inspect after completion. I went up to clean my gutters and the roofing sheets are hanging so far into gutter that you cannot get your hand in the gutter to remove the leaves. I contacted my erector and he told me since my roof has a low pitch that the metal has to extend way out from the framing. He says that I will have to remove the hangers to pull gutter out far enuogh to remove the debris. Is this correct ?
    A: Steve, The short answer is yes he may be correct but it does depend on the style of gutter used on the new building. If you will paste the address below into your browser it will show you MBCI's standard "high faced" gutter detail. http://www.mbci.com/pdf/design_tech_manuals/PBR_PBU_Manual.pdf This could easily create the cleaning problem you have described. Other manufacturers use a gutter that does not come to the top of the roof panel as this one does. Those "underhung" gutters are more easily cleaned. What may be appropriate for you at this point would be to install a leaf guard product to prevent leaves and other debris from entering the gutters. If your building has an "underhung" type gutter then it is possible...
    Q: I am going over existing shingles with metal roofing. Which is better for underlayment AYR foil of 30# felt? Thanks greg
    A: Greg, Always check with the specific panel MFG's for their recommendations first. My experience would say that if you are going to use a "Reflective Foil" as a radiant barrier you must have an air gap. some of the new standing seam panels now hold the panels aprox 3/8"-1/2" above the existing roof deck. This creates an air cavity that can be vented and will assist in makeing the building/home more energy efficient. If you are using a panel that does not standoff then the 30# felt with a "slip sheet" would probably be advisable. If you have not heard of a slip sheet, this is a layer of material that keeps the panels from bonding to the felt and restricting their ability to handle expansion and contraction. Again check with the p...
    Q: We had galvanised corugated sheets for roofing. Some of them started rusting from edges and some of them had white rust on them. Can you suggest any repair procedures so that I can reuse those sheets.
    A: Kishor, The white rust will end as soon as the panels are unstacked and normally will wash off with a nylon brush, soap and water. The edge rust is another issue however. The edges are the raw cut sides and ends of the panels. In the open air the zinc will run down the panel and across the raw edges carried by rain water and minimize this occurance. Stacked however this may not occur. If they are still stacked you should be able to wire brush or steel wool the edges and then apply a "liquid galvanizing" to the panel ends and edges. If they are already instaled the process is a bit more difficult to remove the existing rust and apply the liquid galvanizing. This may take masking, cleaning, re-masking, coating and a bunch of ted...
