Gulf Coast Supply & Mfg. Inc. Installation of Panels Roof Pitch Gulf Coast Supply’s engineering requires a minimum pitch of 2/12 for wood frame construction, and ½/12 for steel frame, to ensure proper water drainage. A 2/12 pitch means that the minimum roof slope required for all panels is 2 inches of vertical rise per horizontal foot. Butyl sealant with lap screws is required on all side panel laps on roofs with less than a 4/12 pitch to prevent water from siphoning over the ribs (see Figure 7 on page 6), but is optional on roofs with a 4/12 pitch or greater. Consult our representative for recommendations for your particular roof pitch, and about roofing options if you have less than a 2/12 pitch.

Roof Preparation Oil-canning is a wave-like, rippled appearance extending up the length of the panel after it has been installed on the roof. Any irregularities in the roof, including uneven plywood joints, warped plywood, uneven trusses, poor application of underlayment, the use of button caps with felt paper, etc., can promote oil-canning. Care should be taken to provide a flat, uniform surface on which to attach the panels. See page 8 for more details.

Roof Application Panel installation should begin at the gable end of the roof opposite the prevailing rain-bearing wind (this will provide added assurance against wind-driven rain being forced under the laps). Measure one full panel width in (approx. 38") from the roof edge. At this point chalk a line from ridge to eave (avoid getting chalk on panels— it may discolor them!). Place the leading edge of the first panel along this line. It is extremely important that this panel be laid square to the eave and ridge so that the remaining panels will line up square on the roof frame. It is wise to have a person at the eave and at the ridge to ensure that the proper panel coverage is being maintained across the roof. Also be sure that the panels are properly side-lapped (again, see fig. 7 on page 6). In applications where end-lapping is necessary, the upper panel on the slope should lap over the panel that is lower on the slope. Lower roof pitch requires a greater amount of panel overlap. All endlap applications require two horizontal rows (across the panel) of butyl sealant tape and proper fastening to provide a maximum water seal. An overhang of 2 to 3 inches is recommended to provide a drip edge, while only 1 inch overhang is necessary where gutters are used (see p. 15). The open panel ribs at the eave can be sealed with inside closures. For maximum weather-tightness, a row of butyl tape can be applied above and beneath inside closures.

Trimming and Cutting Steel Panels The best device for cutting steel panels across the profile is either a portable or hand shear, or a nibbler. Nibblers, however, and especially Carborundum blades on electric saws, do have a tendency to either leave hot metal particles that can burn paint surfaces or leave rust marks on panels and trim. The same is true of any filings left on the roof caused by the application of screws. Care should be taken to brush all such particles from roof surfaces after application. To cut panels lengthwise: Note carefully where the panel is to be cut, and, using a straight-edge, score deeply down the length of the panel with a sharp-pointed utility knife. Folding the panel along the score mark, and bending back again if necessary, should produce a clean break in the panel. CAUTION! clean all metal shavings and particles off of roof to avoid unsightly rust stains

Gulf Coast Supply & Mfg. Inc. Ordering Roof Panels and Screws Care should be taken to order panels of the correct length to avoid having to make corrective measures after purchase. Panel lengths should fall 2 to 3 inches short of the ridge when a vented ridge is desired, and should extend 2 to 3 inches past the eave to allow a sufficient drip edge (except as noted on pg. 3 concerning gutters). The Gulf Coast sales personnel are ready to assist customers with information specific to their particular roof. Specially-washered screws applied through the flat of the metal is the most recommended method used to attach roofing panels. 1½ inch screws are the commonly recommended length. 2½ inch screws are available for ridge-cap application and other special needs. For attachment to metal purlins, a minimum of #12 x 1” hex head TEK screw or equivalent is recommended, and for stitching panels and trim to panels, we recommend #14 x 7/8” lap TEK self-drilling screws. See pages 6 and 7 for more information on screw spacing and ordering.

Ordering and Applying Trim The most common flashing for metal roofing is the ridge cap, which is used at the peak of a roof where two opposing roof slopes join. Other flashings include transition flashing, end wall and sidewall flashings, and valleys (see diagram on right for application). Eave flashings include gable flashing and eave drip, both of which are often applied above fascia trim. When roof pitch exceeds 5/12 (a 5 inch rise in 12 inches), the slope of the roof should be mentioned when ordering ridge caps, endwalls, and eave drip. When a steeper roof slope meets a lesser slope, both slopes should be mentioned when ordering transition flashing. At the gable edge the use of gable trim adds to the appearance of the structure and protects the fly-rafter, and sidewall flashing is used where the side of a panel butts up against an adjacent wall. In either case, the installer should be careful to seal between the gable rake or sidewall and panel with butyl sealant tape, and to fasten the trim every 6" to 12" up the slope of the roof with the appropriate screws. If eave drip is used on the gable, the number of 90 degree eave drip for the gable should be specified separately from that used on the drip edge when ordering. To prevent penetration of water, insects, and debris at the ridge, either solid or vented closure material is inserted between the ridge cap and the top end of the panel (shown on p. 9). Screws are applied through the ridge cap, closure, and each rib of the panels. 2½" wood screws or self-drilling lap screws should be used for attaching ridge caps.

Keep Materials Dry! Paint and finishes of Gulf Coast panels and trim are designed to withstand severe rain and wet weather conditions. Neither paint, galvanized, or Galvalume finishes, however, are designed to be in continuous contact with water for long periods of time. Damage will result if uninstalled panels or trim are allowed to remain wet in storage. Be sure to store material that will not be installed immediately in a dry location. Wet material should be air-dried and re-stacked if installation is not planned right away.

Figure 5 PBR panel screw calculation chart

How to Figure and Apply Screws Gulf Coast Supply carries screws in 3 different lengths: 1 inch, 1½ inch, and 2 ½ inch. 1-inch screws will barely penetrate a 1x4, but the 1½ inch are the best all-purpose size. 2½-inch wood screws or selfdrilling lap screws are necessary for attaching ridge caps. The above table (Figure 6) can be used to figure approximate quantities of screws for various purlin spacings and sizes of roofs. For 2-foot spacing between rows of screws, multiply the total linear feet of metal times 1.9 Example: your order is 1250 feet of PBR roofing. 1250 x 1.9 = 2375 screws Please confirm all estimates with your Gulf Coast representative when you place your order. Codes allow re-roofing over shingles without the use of battens providing the roof has been checked by a licensed roofing contractor to insure levelness and pullout integrity. ® PBR metal roofing can be separated from the moisture barrier by minimum, nominal 1"x3" yellow pine battens spaced on maximum 24" centers, or according to ASCE calculations where applicable. Since direct contact between pressure treated lumber and metal roofing must be avoided in order to prevent potential corrosion, Gulf Coast Supply sells only untreated battens. CAUTION: Battens must be fastened to the roof deck with minimum #6 screws at 12" on-center, or two minimum 8d common or pneumatic nails spaced 8" on-center, or one every 4" on-center (or by applicable calculations according to ASCE 7-98). Battens must be installed to support the entire width and length of ridge, eave, hip, valley, and gable-end trims. For solid decking, at least ½-inch structural plywood or OSB (5/8" for Metro-Dade new construction and for any high velocity wind zone of 120 and above) supported on rafters at a maximum of 24" on center is required. In residential applications, building codes require a plywood deck with the use of #30 felt to provide adequate thermal and moisture barrier protection. If care is taken, metal roofing application can be aided by pre-drilling panels, allowing screws to go quickly and accurately into the desired spacing. Pre-drilling will work provided that pilot holes are placed accurately in the proper locations on panels. Purlin spacing must be uniform and carefully measured.

Gulf Coast Supply & Mfg. Inc. Ridge Cap The Ridge Cap is used to seal the upper point at which two slopes meet. This can be both along the ridge of the roof as well as the covering for a hip. Either woodgrip or self-drilling lap TEK screws are applied through the ribs of the metal. Debris, insects, and blowing rain can find easy access under the ridge cap, so closures are required to either completely or partially seal the opening. Closures under ridge caps come in 3 types: solid, vented, and hip tape. Figure 8 Ridge cap with outside closure (left) and vented closure in place. PBR roofing requires either 7/8 inch lap tech or 2-1/2 inch Solid closures (“Outside Closures”) are as Woodqrip® screws for attaching the ridge cap. long as the width of the panels. They lock together in a row placed directly under the screws that attach the ridge cap, and form a solid, water-tight, air-tight barrier. (see Figure 8 above). ® Vented closure (Profile Vent ) comes in lengths up to 50', is 3 inches wide, and forms a water-retardant, insect resistant barrier that allows hot air to escape from the attic. It is superior to many more elaborate and expensive venting systems. ® Hip closure tape (Peel and Seal ) is a sticky, adhesive-backed metallic tape that seals the hip roof. It is 6 inches wide and comes in 33½ foot rolls. Because it must conform to the rise and fall of panel ridges, approximately 10% extra may be needed beyond the length of the hip being covered. ®

Gulf Coast Supply & Mfg. Inc. Gutters Gulf Coast Supply produces 29-, 26-, and 24-gauge gutters in either 5- or 6-inch widths (depth is approximately equal to width). All gutters should be ordered specific to the pitch of the roof. Downspouts are available in 3"x4" (for 5-inch gutters) and 4"x4" (for larger gutters). End caps should be ordered at the same time as the gutters to assure a custom fit. Gutter hangers fit over (or inside) the panel rib and under the gutter lip. Panels should extend no more than 1" to 1½" inches beyond the eave on which gutters are planned.








Gutter hangers fit over panel rib and under lip of gutter (apply at least one per panel) and are attached with lap screws.
