Corrugated Metal layout!
 
I am struggling bad with this.

I am on a tight budget so just saying "I need 2500 sq ft" and then getting a bunch of 16 footers that give me a bunch of waste in the end isn't how I want to go. I would prefer to actually lay it out "ok this run is 13'6" so I should get a 14 footer here... "

I am exhausted trying to figure this out. I have a CAD drawing with lines for metal and window locations. I am just stumped.

how does one go about doing this!?

how tall is the slope of the roof, do you need to overlap the metal to make it all the way up the roof? I usually by standard sized material and work around that sizing cutting it down to fit when necessary. with one piece material that is big and bulky you need to know where each piece lays to figure out the amount needed. asphalt shingles are different and an over all square footage will suffice when figuring amounts needed so it is easier.

Is this a roof? If it is then you order the panels the length you need for the roof. If the roof is 18 ' 5" inches then you order 18'5" long panels.

If you send me your building dimensions I have a program that lays out your sheets. You'll know lengths and counts. Let me know if you want this. I'll need L x W x H. Roof Slope. Framed opening location and dimensions.

It's for siding. I thought I mentioned that or at least mentioned windows :-)

We are DIY (have used on garage but much easier layout!!) and its Nu-wave. Hubby thought perhaps 20 ft is longest we could handle with 3 people?! But I don't think a bunch of 20' are most efficient use.

That being said, can program still help with siding?!

Thanks for your responses!

I'm new to using this. perhaps I should have quoted you?

If program works for siding and can work around windows and 2 doors? Let me know!

doesn't sound like you're doing enough to warrant customized panel order, so you'll be working from standardized sheets? If that's the case, a pad of graph paper, scissors, and a pencil 9with eraser) can be your new best friend. Outline the wall, windows, door, to scale on the graph paper. One another sheet cut out the standard panel sizes (3 is all you'll need). Then start to lay them out. Sketch the outlines of the panels onto the wall drawing as you figure out placements. Cheap, visual, and very effective.

I've been doing that, in CAD. I have about 2400 ft. It's main material in a 2700 sq ft home. I have cedar and Fiber cement accents but metal has largest percentage of coverage.

I just dont know do I stop at windows and start next sheet?
Do you cut window dimension out of metal like you would a door with sheet rock?

I've looked at this two days with kids and other mommy duties and I just have to get this ordered!

I haven't played with AutoCAD in years. Sorry I dont think my program will help much. All siding profiles we roll are 36" coverage. It says the Nu-Wave panel is 34" and some change. So your panel count will be a little off. Here is an example of what my panel layout diagram would look like.

You're talking about vertical metal, right? 24" 36" or what?

I think this is what she's talking about.

Mel-Baum 04-25-2013 12:12 PM

Yes that's it... Aep span nu wave 34-2/3 for wall coverage. :-)

Well? Can we try? What would you program need? I basically created a p-line for each elevation of metal and I have window outlines so I know work around.

I'm going to post a picture. May help.

Thanks:)

Send me the width length and height of the barn. Roof Slope. location and size of all framed opening.s

Here is project. Second PDF shows outlines for metal.

Anymore advice?

Can program figure this dude out?

Should I take the second pdf labeled "Metal" and dimension all that up for you?
