To test the sturdiness of the sheet, try to stand with equal weight distribution on both feet.
Avoid walking on the sheets especially on the end laps gutter, single rib, and on the skylight sheets.
Necessary elements like channels, angles, truss, and tubes should be painted before you start the installation procedure.
Avoid using carbon washers, J hook and stainless steel screws as these results in damage of the sheet.
After installation is completed, sweep all dust and debris from the roof.
Don’t allow accumulation of dirt and debris.
Neutral silicone sealants made of rubber are the best to use.
Sealants with an excess amount of acetic acid are a big no-no. These sealants leave off various by-products which are detrimental to the sheets.
Cleaning the roof after installation is very important. Use any mild detergent and clean water for this purpose. Using nylon brush with soft bristle or a soft mop or cloth is recommended.
Do not use any abrasive cleaner, sponge scourers, steel wool, and rough wire brushes. The paint film might get softened due to use of all these.
Wear personal protective equipment like soft-soled shoes, hand gloves, high visibility vests, goggles, and helmet.
Never install roof sheets during the rain. This will make the sheets slippery and wet.
Guns with torque adjustment are highly recommended while fixing of the SDS screws. While working with roof sheets the screws should be fixed on the crest. In case of wall sheets, the valley is proper place to fix the screws. For external work use type AS 3566 Class 3 to 4.
The screws should not be overdriven or underdriven as this can result in water leakage and damage of the washer.
