Metal roofing on a shed...sheet and ridge cap installation?
June 22, 2008 2:36 PM Subscribe
I'm nearly the end of my first major building project...an 8'x8' shed with a foot overhang on all sides. I've just put up the trusses (purchased them, with a 4 in 12 pitch) and put 3/8" plywood on top. A neighbour gave me a whole bunch of metal sheet roofing in 12' lengths that I will cut down to length. My question is...he didn't give me a ridge cap and I have no idea what to buy or how to install that. Advice please? FWIW, I'm not 100 clear on the metal sheet installation either, so help there is appreciated too.
Please keep in mind that this is just a shed and I don't expect anything even close to perfection! Thanks!
