A Big Gl ass Wall

Hi All:

We’ve been way busy getting to dry in.  All have done a super job.  We have a hard windy day ahead with cold weather on heel.  So pardon the terse.

    Looking great Mark! I shared this video with Jim & he has some concerns about your roof. He used to do sheet metal work and got concerned where you are screwing in your roof. Needs to be screwed on the ridges and not in the valleys, unless you are going to silicone each one to prevent leaking.

    Very excited to watch your adventure unfold for your new home. Sending hugs! Liesa

      Hi Lisa:

      Thanks.

      That’s a long-standing religious debate among construction folks & manufacturers. I relied on the manufacturer recommendations & used “fat-boy” screws and lap screws on the lap ridges. Here is the best practice guide. Which puts screws in both ridges and flats. The ridges are designed to move during thermal expansion, so these screws do not penetrate the roof deck.

      I figured the manufacturers probably would be the most reliable source for how to install their own product.

      Regards,
      Mark
