How to Install Your Roofing Panels
Installing your roofing panels is not a difficult task. If you have basic DIY skills, you should be able to handle it. All you really need to install the panels are:
Hammer or nail gun (optional)
Roofing panel of your choice
Here are the step by step instructions on how to do it:
Using the measuring tape and pencil, measure and mark the area where you will put your roofing panels. Make sure that it’s a level surface before you start marking it. This is very important to make sure that your roof will have the best support and won’t fall apart easily.
Once you’re done marking your area, it’s time to remove the old roofing panels. If you’re working on a new roof, you can skip this step of removing the old panels or if you’re re-shingling an existing roof, you can save time by just installing your roofing panels right on top of the old ones. So if you’re working on a new roof, just place your panels right away and skip the rest of this step.
But if you’re re-shingling an existing roof, remove the old roofing panels first. You can do this by prying them off with a hammer or utility knife. If there are nails holding them in place, use a claw hammer to pull them out. If there are stubborn nails that won’t move, use your utility knife to cut through the nails.
When the old roofing panels are gone, take this opportunity to sweep or vacuum up any debris on the surface of your roof.
Now you can start installing your new roofing panels. If you’re using aluminum or steel panels, they usually come in 20 foot long sections and are fairly easy to install. If you’re using wooden or rope panels, you can install them however you want as long as they’re sturdy.
Once your roofing panels are installed, it’s time to nail or staple them into place. You can do this by nailing them from the inside of your roof (if your roof is hollow) and stapling them from the top. Use a claw hammer for nail and a staple gun for stapling.
If you’re installing saw tooth roofing panels, you’ll have to do it from the inside of your roof. To do this, just use a claw hammer.
After you’ve finished nailing or stapling your roofing panels into place, your roof is complete!
Now that you’ve finished building your roof, let’s move on to installing the walls of your greenhouse.
Building Greenhouse Walls
There are three types of walls you can choose from: wood, glass, and polycarbonate. Each one has its own advantages and disadvantages. So depending on what your needs are, you can choose which one is best for you.
Wood walls are the most common type of wall. They retain heat very well so are ideal for cold weather areas.
