Putting a metal roof on a cabin this fall (24x16 two story), nothing fancy. A contractor is doing the labor for the framing and roof but I'm buying materials, have to buy the roof (going metal), screws and trim. A few questions.
Thought of saving a little bit of money and not putting the trim on the roof (the eave and gable trim)...would not be much more to put it on, but any recomendations as to the draw backs of leaving it off?
Also need to order screws, whew they seem expensive so I want to order the correct amount and size, thinking 1.5 inch for the majority of the roofing, as there is some deck the roof will be 32 feet and require 22 sheets of 3x12 metal roofing, any ideas on the amount and type (3/4" or 1.5") screws I would need. I imagine there is a common calculation for to put "X" amount of 3x12" metal roof up you need "Y" amount of a type of screw.
Greatly appreciate any information.
