Norman Bennett shows us how to install a steel roof in a nice tutorial over on Backwoods Home. He says “One of the reasons steel roofs have become so popular is the simplicity and economy with which they can be placed over an old shingle roof. Still, despite the ease of installation, there are some important guidelines you should follow that can make the difference between a roof that’s a work of art and something people look at and cringe because of sharp unfinished edges or the spattering of screws that look as if they were laid out by the distant blast of a shotgun. Follow a few simple guidelines and your roof will look appealing as well as last your lifetime. “
