Metal Roof Installation ???


We just got done installing our first metal roof. It was a 2 layer shingle tear off, install ice and water shield on the entire roof and install an r-panel metal. The manufacturer recommends using butyl tape on the overlapping seams - but is not a requirement. The manufacturer says the roof as is, is under warranty and installed correctly, but the owner wants the butyl tape installed.

It is a 60' run, with 2 screws in the flat and one on the overlapping rib every 8'. Am I wrong to say that there is no need for the butyl tape? The pitch on the roof is a 4.5/12

Its more of a question of is the time and effort to install the tape worth having a very happy customer willing to recommend you to family, friends, and neighbors?

Just say no, you installed it to manufacture specs, your duty is done. It is to late for a good refference at this point anyways, All the customer will ever remember is the one thing you did wrong, even if you fix it.
If you already got the check, Move on.

Since you have full ice & water underlay, it will never leak anyway.

My strong opinion is you need to attach butyl tape on roof because the pitch on the roof size is 4.5/12 it is very less and also it is under manufacturer warranty. The tape protects and seals cracks, seams and even small holes on the surface of a roof. In most cases, the tape works best on smooth, dirt- and grit-free roofs. The tape can hold many types of roofing together, such as metal, vinyl, asphalt, cement and tar paper.

What? You mean to tell me instead of buying 50+ dollar roll of 3" seam tape I could have used metal panel butyl tape? Damn it!

Re: Metal Roof Installation ???


That pesky butyl tape. I like watching our new guys wear it all day long.

The water stop we use on commercial roofing is like dealing with bubble gum or melted cheese. There are only a few guys on our crew that are allowed to touch it or it ends up everywhere...

Lots of OLD posts coming back. I noticd this is happening on Contractor Talk as well.

Metal roofing is really popular because it adds durability, beauty, and helps reduce the energy costs of your home. This type of roofing is available in a wide array of colors, textures, and styles.Metal Roofing Installation, like all roofing, is simple in design but can become complicated quickly. The flashing details and the attention to attachment procedures make the difference between a good metal roof and a problem roof.
