Take care and you will end up with a great roof

Fitting and fixing these sheets to your roof is a fairly easy task that most people can handle. You just need to make sure that you follow safety measures throughout. This will keep you and others safe.

If there are ever sheets that you need to cut for your roof, you should do this on the ground rather than at a height. The reason for this is that cutting metal on a roof is a dangerous task. You or anyone on the ground could be hurt if there is an issue. Instead, lay your box profile sheets face down on padded supports.

When you install the sheets, lay them in runs, with a slight overlap and fasten them through the underneath of the trough. You should start at the eaves in the corner, away from the prevailing wind’s direction.

It is worth noting that if you don’t lay the first sheet perpendicular to the eaves and the ridge, you will have to keep making adjustments. Otherwise, you will end up with a ‘saw tooth’ effect. You should make sure that the first row goes over the bottom purlin and eaves. This way, rain will be able to drain properly.

You have to take care so that you do not damage the profiles in the process of fitting them. This way you will end up with a roof that looks great and functions as you need it to.

Box profile sheets – A fantastic roofing solution

These sheets are a great choice for a huge number of reasons. For starters, this is a lightweight product so installation is easy and quick. The sheeting is also a fantastic choice when you are looking for something cost effective for your roof. It is much cheaper than opting for traditional tiling and does a great job.

You can fit the sheeting as a roofing option or add sheets to a roof for cladding. The latter will provide your structure with additional protection and offers a way to alter the appearance without costing you a fortune.
