How you should install Corrugate Roof
The first thing you should do is to know the exact size of the roof that you need. Here you need to measure the area where you want to install the roof.
Once you are measured, you should cut the panels for your desired length. You can use a circular saw or jig saw with a metal blade to cut the panels.
After cutting the panels, you should now drill holes on the rows. For the ideal results, you should ensure that the ends and sides of the panels have different 6 to 8 inches holes.
After the drilling hole you should now install the panels. Here you should make sure that you put the panels directly on the purlins attached to the roof truss.
When setting up, you should ensure that you start from the outer edge. You should also ensure that the panel overlaps at least four inches.
The roof should be more than two inches on the edges. Tighten the panels in place you should use a screw and a waterproof washer.
Once you are able to set up a line, then you should go to the next. Here you should make sure that the bottom line of the new row is at the top of the first row. By doing so it is ensured that the water flows down from the ceiling without the risk of water leaks.
You should secure the panel in place and keep working until the ceiling, until you reach the ridge line, add the row. You should be cautious when you reach the ridge line. Here you should ensure that you keep the top row carefully and make sure that the Corrugated Roof will not move beyond the ridge on each side.
Instead of going beyond the ridge, it should be in the same position as the ridge so that the top of the sheets of both sides are touching.
After doing this, you should use special corrugated ridge roof. You should keep it so that it covers the top of the corridor roof.
Like other panels, you should screw a special roof in place. To stop the entry of rain or pests, you should close the edge with a wooden or plastic strip.
