metal roof questions
I want to put a metal roof on a back porch.
The porch now only has the roof joists. about 3/12 pitch.
Livin in Pennsylvania, we get all type of weather.
I want to know what to put down after the joists.
Can I just put 1x4's spaced apart and if so how far apart.
Fot the roof, where do I screw the screws, on the ridge or flats ??
And also flashing next to house, what to use with metal ?
Any help with these questions and possibly more input would be helpful
You need a solid surface to install the 2X2 wood strips. On top of the 2X2 you install the metal roof. The easiest and safest is to install 1/2" plywood and then on top of the plywood you install the 2x2 then comes the metal roof. Look at my website and then my blog i have pics of the metal roof recently installed with the plywood. Good luck.
