The whole process in installing the standing seam metal roof can involve a lot of tiresome work, but it does not mean you cannot make the work truly bothersome. In fact, you can make the work a bit easier by preparing everything necessary during the basic prep work stage. Therefore, you can optimize the standing seam metal roof details for satisfying and successful project. Here is what you need to do when prepping your work for standing seam metal roof panels installation!
The most important thing about standing seam metal roof installation is to get the correct and precise measurement of your roof. Remember that each standing seam panel has been cut to the exact size. Thus, if the panels are too short, there are some costly issues may arise. Apart from that, you may also have to spend extra work and time, as well as a lot more money to spend, to fix the issues from inaccurate measurement.
Apart from that, keep in mind that roofing, by its nature, is a dangerous work—very, very dangerous work. Therefore, your safety should be priority. It is always recommended for you to use a full body harnesses in addition to a fall protection system that is set up properly, consisting of 50’ lifeline, shock-absorbing lanyard, and roof anchors, when you are working on the standing seam metal roof installation project. The safety equipment can always be bought from stores or roofing supply place.
We also recommend you to use 3” framing nails or heavy duty steel screws with a double head for easy removal as you install roof anchors for standing seam metal roof over the ridge. Therefore, every “ear” of the anchor is placed on different side of the room. Find roof rafters and then put your nails into them as a best way to install the anchor. This will provide the best hold-down on your roof. As you attach the lifeline rope, be sure the arrow on the lanyard’s self-tracking rope clutch points up to the roof anchor.
At least, 3 anchors are needed for an average-sized home. Every person on the roof must be tied off to his own anchor when begin installing standing seam metal roof. Unless it’s the end of the job and other anchors have been removed, there shouldn’t be more than 1 person tied to 1 anchor. And install the anchor must be the very first thing to do as you get up onto your roof. Start measuring the rope only when the anchor is attached securely and snap on the rope.
