One of the biggest advantages with corrugated roofing is that it can be installed very quickly. This is really great because the longer a structure is without a roof the more opportunity there is for the elements to cause damage. It also helps to drive the costs down as a result of the time that is saved.
To maximise the speed the corrugated roofing sheets should be cut to size in advance and have holes pre-drilled. It is better to do this before placing them on the roof as it aids safety and accuracy. It also reduces the amount the materials are handled, lessening the risk of them getting damaged.
When cutting the sheets it is important to use a tool that produces minimal heat. This is important because you want to keep any damage to the protective coating to a minimum. With that in mind you should avoid reciprocating saws and disc cutters. Additionally these tools also create a ragged edge if you are not careful. Snips are better because they produce a clean edge and no heat.
As well as cutting and drilling the corrugated roofing you can save extra time by doing the same with flashings. This will make them ready to install and allows you to get the roof finished with minimal delays.
A third thing you can do to save time on the project is to order materials from a reliable supplier who keeps them in stock. This way you can get them delivered promptly and not have to wait for materials to be manufactured.
