Roof

You dont say what you have here . All I can say is for your first sheets snap a line across the roof so the first bottom sheets have about 2" over hang on the faciaboard and work up from there. ED

Don't know what kind of metal roof you are talking about or where you live, but all the standing seam roof manufacturers I work with recommend putting ice and water shield under the metal.

The best thing you could do is contact the manufacturer and request installation instructions; they may even have them on line.
