Recommended Fastening Method
When fixing into timber battens, we recommend a 12 gauge x 65mm Type 17 Hex Head screw. If fixing into steel purlins, please use a 12 gauge x 55mm Steel Fix Hex Head screw. When using the sheets as wall cladding, a 12 gauge x 25mm Type 17 Hex Head should be used for timber battens and for steel purlins, a 10 gauge x 16mm Steel Fix Hex Head screw is best.
The neatest way to cut the roofing sheets is with either tin snips or cordless shears.
- Important Tips On Tackling A DIY Roof Restoration Project
- Watching all those reality TV home make-over shows can be quite inspiring. You think that with all the right tools and a reliable guide (from YouTube or DIY blogging communities), there really is nothing much to tackling home renovation or repair projects. If you have some background in construction, that may just be the case, but if you’re a complete novice, these projects can present a multitude of surprises. With roof restoration, you may be inclined to think that you just need a complete set of tools and that YouTube video to guide you, but once you climb up onto your roof and find the extent of the restoration required, your knees may just buckle at the magnitude of the task. This doesn’t mean it cannot be done, but the important thing here is to be completely prepared.
- If you’re thinking of saving a significant amount of money by DIY-ing this particular home improvement project (say, in preparation for extreme weather), consider the following tips from professionals to help you with understanding the process and completing the job flawlessly.
- First is to do your homework. Visit the hardware store or online supplier so you have an idea of the materials to use, the different brands, their unique qualities and their prices. Doing this can help you decide whether to splurge on an upgrade or be practical all the way to save money.
- The second tip is to get advice on maintenance because roof restoration is not something you want to do frequently. Aside from the project being rather time- and energy-consuming, even if you’re tackling the project yourself, the cost of replacing materials can easily run high.
- Third is to always remember that it’s your home and the project may require your household to make adjustments and even sacrifices for a couple of (or even several) days. Most of the time, roof restoration can mess with cable connections for TV, the Internet, etc. Draw up a plan to better deal with the disruptions the project can create.
- The fourth tip is to have a clear assessment of the aspects of the job that you can do and those that you would just have to entrust to professionals. Professionals always say that the DIY route is good, but always hire them for tasks that you wouldn’t want to pay for twice.
- Last one is to always expect delays. Restoration experts say that every project, especially a DIY one, normally takes longer than you think it would. Don’t get discouraged and just continue with the job especially if you want to be sure that the job is done right.
