Preparing your sheets for installation

When it comes to roofing materials, you will want the assistance of a company that knows what it is doing. With years of experience working in the industry, we are an establishment that meets this requirement. It might be box profile sheets you’re after or something else. Regardless, we’ll see to it that you obtain the proper products for your project.

If you are a first time user of box profile sheeting, then you may need help with a few areas. The following is a general guide on how to prepare your sheets for installation.

Cutting to size

First, we’ll talk about cutting a sheet on site. When you have to cut your sheets, we recommend that you position them on the ground. They must rest face down and be on padded supports. You should cut with utensils that create low heat levels because high temperatures can ruin the sheet’s coating. For longer straight cuts, we suggest that you employ a circular saw. Said saw should have a fine-tooth metal cutting blade that generates a cold cut.

Safety first

Next, we will move on to safety. Roofing work is a dangerous affair. You must always exercise caution and have the right PPE. This includes wearing a hard hat, appropriate footwear, clothing, and protective gloves. Wherever you can, use crawling boards when walking over the sheeting. If you’re unable to do this, you can walk close to or over the purlin supports. Remember to keep your weight evenly spread whilst doing this. To lower sheet damage and guarantee maximum grip, wear clean soft-soled footwear.
