Showemright YTchannel: Also it safe to walk on this type of roof paneling, i'm looking to installing solar panels on the metal there a way to walk on roof without damaging or crushing the roof?

Showemright YTchannel: I'm looking to do metal roofing on a Lean Shed, I'm trying to figure out, how I make it water(leak proof) at the peak (top)part of the roof....anyone have an idea? if I use a ridge cap, surely i can secure the metal panel side, how do I secure the opposite side with no panel...or is it just impossible to metal roof a lean shed..

Showemright YTchannel: are you the" King of DIY.".with the fish aquarium builds?

Farmboy2917: I did my roof 48 by 16 feet , similar to this one . The roof was sound, rot-free and level , so I chose not to use strapping . I scraped off any humps in the oid shingles and swept clean , then put down an underlayment , which apparently seals the screw holes when you screw in the metal. I really could find no good reason for using strapping , and the manufacturer says it is optional on resurfaced residential roofs. They even have a more expensive metal style which has hidden screw seams for which they specifically state do not strap . Pre-drilling the screw holes while the panels are stacked evenly on the ground is ESSENTIAL , and will save you much time when lining up and screwing the panels on the roof . Screws in the top of the rib are recommended in Canada.

314 o98: what no vents???????????????

Timemachine Eddie: No you didn't give enough information . You gave an incredible amount of information. What a wonderful job you did, What I love is by leaving the shingles on it adds weight to the roof so I would think that if really severe winds were to hit the structure the roof would be much stronger. What an amazing video and thanks for sharing. Question! What would you think of doing this to a roof with two sets of shingle on a home?

Kondwani Williams: this roof will leak after a while....the screws are install wrong.

chevy vega: have a shop with this on the roof and multiple water damage spots along several rafters. water penetration spots unknown since insulation was put down prior to metal panels. metal roofs are terrible stay away a constant mystery leak

msanchez1210: Well done 👍🏻

J rock: "Secret...agent man...."

BSA BANTAM: Thanks :)

DormantIdeas NIQ: huhh not washers, not gaskets, but grommet crap ...and grommet crap is crap, roof will expand and contract and cause many if not all the screws to be a leak! especially when you place the fasteners NOT on the ridges top!!! ..though it does no matter they are all HOLES in your roof... 40 holes per metal sheet LOL
Concealed fasteners is the way to do this, plus proper gaping for thermal expansion/contraction
OR after first year small trickles from many grommets, 2nd year more, 3rd year useless roof
...hmmm it skeeeers me to even attempt this!

Kingquad 400: Wrong dumb freaker u do so much wrong delete this video freak head

Jake Schmidt: I noticed a mistake on your gable trim. You should start from the bottom and work your way up not the other way around.

Christina Haydel: Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive watch anything like this before. So good to find any individual with some authentic thoughts on this subject. realy thank you for beginning this up. this youtube video is one thing thats needed on the youtube, somebody with a bit of originality. useful job for bringing something new to the youtube!

sam zweerinks: That's one way to do that.

Google Demetrius Eugene moore: Amen I see that that's a smart way to do it without lifting a hand to do tearoff for poor people and shady

TierodMcslush: Basically...

Hanksterock Pase rock: Folks, Perhaps if you measure for square, use the 3-4-5 method and simply check periodically as you go with snapped chalk lines. Drip-edge gets installed from the bottom up overlapping 6" – 12” or better as you would with any flashing installation depending on your local building codes. You forgot to mentioned obstacles, what if there's a skylight etc? Use a drill gun with a clutch to avoid any dips and dimple effects with the torque control settings and not over rotating the screws or snapping the heads off. Use the appropriated nut driver (1/4" magnetic tip) not a bit holder shaft so that it will minimize screw-head stripping and allow a straight and flat fastening application. Too many things to mention here like foam underlayment, creating the right thermal block and not leaving your asphalt shingles on. However, as a DIY-selfer, I will have to give you credit. It's not easy attempting this dangerous task without being a roofer. So, like you said, seek professional help.
