The most popular material that is now used for the roof is metal tile. Simplicity of its installation allows such work on your own. The easiest metal is easily laid on the roof with a conventional configuration having an angle of inclination of at least 14 degrees. In this case, the material will not need to be cut, and, therefore, less waste will remain, which will lead to significant saving of the budget.
Before the metal tile and the rest of the material is bought, you must carefully, several times, measure the roof. The size of the diagonal requires special attention. All existing irregularities should be eliminated. If this is impossible, for some reason, then the tile can be laid so that the lower edge of the crate coincides with the overhang line. Ideally, a sheet of tiles should be more than a roof slope by 4 cm, and the cornice should be overlap at one end. In this regard, a ventilated space is formed on the skate. Then, to lay the roof, special tools will be needed. You will need electric spike, hacksaw, electric drill and knife for metal.
The first step that needs to be taken is to pull the supporting walls. Next is the preparation for installing the rafter system, or frame. Make it from the beams. Regardless of how much roofing material will weigh, the rafter system must withstand the weight of 200 kg. per 1 sq. m. Waterproofing, lying and beams are laid. A decorated system is made from racks and struts. Then the rafters are fixed. They begin with the extreme and intermediate ends. A wooden crate is installed on the rafter system. She is nailed to the rafters with nails. The width of the board for the metal tile is taken 1 m. And experts will prompt the thickness of the boards. When the crate is completely mounted, covering material is laid on it. Metal tile should be laid over.
That is, one sheet is covered with another. They are attached between themselves with self -tapping screws, and screwed to the skate with screws. End strips also hold on self -tapping screws. They are attached to the extreme sheets and crate. Where the slopes are adjacent, Endov is mounted – upper and lower. The final step will be the installation of gutters of drain and pipes. Moreover, hooks should be installed for them before they began to lay the metal tile.
