Sorry, but if you don't overtighten the roofing screws those rubber gaskets work forever-I'm also sure there are good screws & el-cheapo screws---this does not negate the use of silicone with the old existing holes in the metal---better safe then sorry--by the way--finished putting the Old Hitzer up for the summer today & guess what??? that's right--frost warnings out tonight who knows about the next few nights :mad: :x :shots: :surrender: toothy

Silicone seems so perfect when you first put it on, but any time I have tried to seal exposed areas that "move" like metal and wood, especially if exposed to sunlight, the whole thing discolors and deteriorates and comes apart and leaks and makes me wish I had done it right in the first place. :(

i got a few pics and asked and the valleys is the answer. reason is in peaks, different pressure of each screw tends to push panels side ways and thus open possibility for leaks.....

to late to upload tonite ....tomorrow pic...

The pressure thing sounds right, I`ve only done industrial roofing the new stuff is really light weight. That & the fact that we only used speed wrenches now everyone wants to use guns for everything, don`t know how they can keep an eye on the washers using a gun.

If you really want to do it right--above & beyond--run a bead of silicone on each overlap---they make a mastik 2 sided tape for same application, but, I usually end up gettin it stuck in my hair, on my face or just plain tripping over it. toothy Hence, I find running a bead safer ;) PE, what time tomorrow :P :lol:

My steel roof was installed 10 years ago with the screws in the valleys. I also installed snow cleats so the snow doesn't come crashing down all at once. I hate when that happens. A few of the neighbors put metal on after we did.

Maybe you could use some of that metal pegboard for siding. :roll: Whenever I see stuff like that I think back to living in some other areas where they would steal the aluminum siding right off of houses. Just another one of the benifits of life in rural areas. ;) :)

I gotta look into doing that on my barn. Leaked like a sieve the other day when we had all the tornadoes in the area. My industrial roofing experience was limited to modified bitumen torch down crap. And it is crap! :lol:


Off Topic here ... but .... Hey Fred -- being that I was raised in this hellhole & don't know much about farming, etc ... what is that device called directly below your first floor window? I have one of those exact same setups here in the barn. Was here when I moved in. I think I know what it's for, but does it have a name? Maybe I can make some money off it ..... :gee:

That my friend would be a double whiffle-tree--I'm sure there are a hundred names for it which I'm sure we're about to hear, but, it's a double whiffle-tree to me. :rofl:

I've heard that term before. Thanks Fred!

I'm sure someone would be interested in it. Maybe I'll give it a shot on eBay.

I need to invent a search engine that works on pictures! :idea:
