Underlayment plays a very important role in this roof. Therefore, select the right underlayment, particularly water and self-adhering ice shielded product. The panels of this roof have a width of 18 to 24 inches and they run parallel to the roof slope.

Panels attach to the underlayment and fasteners or clips are used to allow for contraction and expansion of the metal with temperature changes. Seams are crimped together with a crimping tool.
