How To Do Metal Roof Valley Foam Insulation - Metal Roof Valley Foam

Phil shows you how to install valley foam on a metal roof. Sorry about the sound quality, there is a transcript of what he’s saying.

00:00 You’ll want to put valley foam in, especially in snowy climates
00:23 Don’t unroll it until you’re ready to do the total area
00:39 Take the screws out and slide it under the edge of the metal in your valleys
01:00 Pulling the cover for the sticky side
01:30 Try to keep the tape low or you will cut it

Probably would or should. There’s a lot of road noise, sorry. Should put valley foam in. Particularly when it snows, the water will go up that valley and go down underneath it, and will find a hole. This is valley foam. It comes in rolls as soon as you unroll this you need to prepare. It will continue to expand, and it expands to two and a half inches thick. So, it’s meant to grow to the odd the angles that you put these valleys on and fill these ribs up with foam. So, the trick is going to be take these screws out, about 16 inches back that you’ve already put in. The screws should be an inch or two away so that they don’t end up being in on the wrong side of the valley foam.

So, what you have got to do is take those screws out go to lift it up, and stick it underneath that edge. But uh, it’s a pain sometimes because you’ve got deep hooks on that edge, and slide it underneath there with the sticky side, which would be this side here and it turns into clear right there down underneath. And then you, we’ll show you how you can just pull it all off. As long as you keep it there. Under the roll there’s a little strip to help you could grab it, put that underneath there, and you want to keep it low or you’re going to end up cutting your, your peal off and you’ll have to reach under there and get it again. It’s kind of a pain, but just keep it low and ends up sticking like that. See that, I cut it so I have to reach under there and grab it anyway. Just keep peeling it up and then that will stay in place and you put your screws back in.

There you go.

➤ Follow us:

Your ridge cap can be a lot of different sizes a lot of different widths, you can get used to have a really wide and this is actually 12 inches across 12 and a quarter 12 and a half. So I’m gonna choose to go five and a half inches, both sides to pop my lines, and then we’re gonna put foam on those lines.

And I’ll show you that.

But one of the things that comes up with the ridge cap is when you lap it over. If he pulled his driveway he’s pulling up this way, you don’t want that lap to be very visible. So like a vinyl siding. So you’re trying to make this side lap over that and you don’t see it as anything but uniform.

So that’s what we did. On this one, the traffic is all over there, and the laps are visible from this direction Not that. So that’s what you need to keep in mind, and we’ll show you what we’re gonna do is really pop their lines measured five and a half from each way on the peak.

And this is where the foam closure is gonna go. And it will go above the linethe foam closure is meant to go over.that line It has sticky stuff to hold it in place. And you can get it without being sticky. If you want to put it in after the fact. After you put the ridge on, it’s kind of hard to deal with that right now also have a closure that breathes like a vent if you had a vent up here, they can breathe in and out and still keep the water out.

So what we’re trying to do is make sure that the water doesn’t get in by driving rain So it has a male female connection there. And then recall above our chalk line be so hot that this stuff would slide down the roof. There was nothing that would as a rule, I don’t get to get to terrible far ahead. Unless I think the weather’s gonna be clear.

Because wind could make a mess and blow your stuff on I am a gambler. when it comes to this gonna put right over that they won’t be able to see the ridge cap. Although I can make a decorative end There you go. We’ll break away to show you how we put down the ridge cap This is a 12 inch you can change the angles the pitch when you order.

Basically relying on my foam to kind of push me where I need to be. It’s telling me Hey, I need to be a little bit.past I’m gonna screw through into the rib I don’t usually bother with this because I am going to put rake over that don’t need another thing to be in the way and I go to the other end.

You try to work it from that side. You’ll end up twisting around on it and it’ll be a battle he’ll take it back and back and forth apart so I don’t do that. And then I do it every other rib from there believe me I’ve never had one blow off.

If you scratch this stuff, they got like a nail polish bottle in the color that you have to ask your supplier don’t like these screws them but here I am using these have kinda got a self drilling tip on them and they wobble a lot There you go, we just decide what direction you want screw off every other one.

And your ridge cap is on no water is going to blow up over and get up in the peak and then leak down whatever screw it wants to on the bottom. Every time somebody says hey, I got a metal roof but my roof is leaking.

So we’re at you know, and generally is hit by a roof vent that’s not been sealed in years because I figured once I got a shingle or a metal roof, they don’t ever have to do any maintenance but you do.

But the classic one is where they decide not to put the closure in and therefore the wind drives that water up and goes over that and then goes down the metal through whatever hole it finds.

So it’s good to put the closure even though it’s got a shingle roof below it.

What we’ve done now is put tape around the flange about an inch and half to two inches away where you can get the elasticool or tar to bind to the metal. And then I make sure that I cover up any nail holes that might have been there. And spread it out, try to feather it out near the tape. And that way.

When we pull the tape off, it looks like you did a perfectly good square. Even though you might have gotten over into the tape quite a bit. It’s what I’ve been doing for years and years. And I know there’s people that say you should use this, but I’m telling you this works and works good, easy to maintain, inexpensive and any kind of caulking shrinks. It really shrinks. When we pull this tape off it will have square edges. We’ll show you tearing the tape off later.

I’m cleaning this and I’m going to try not to get the poo on me.

“And how can you get tar off if you get in a place that.”

Any kind of oil-based product oil, wd40, gasoline is kind of hard on your skin, but any kind of oil will get it off. After that it’s a hot bath. There you go.

“That does look really cool.”

It’s looks from the ground like you know what you’re doing.

“You planned it all. All right.”

How to measure and cut the metal on a valley for metal roof.

00:00 One of the tricky parts of doing a valley
00:48 Want to find the angle
01:06 Take a squared off piece, generally 36″
01:37 Keep it square with the piece you’re measuring from
01:48 Other side even with the line you popped
02:05 Measure where you will lap, not the edge
02:30 When you get your angle, that will tell you where to pop a line to keep square
02:50 Measure up the roof
03:22 Cutting once you have your measurements
04:20 Here’s where your angle comes in, go 38 1/4 up
05:10 How to cut if you work by yourself
06:10 Pop your line to cut the metal roofing
06:35 Types of snipes you can use
07:05 Trick for cutting metal roofing
08:35 Trick when placing your metal-run it along the rib
09:20 Want to screw into your 2 ft centers, keeps metal on even during high winds
10:00 Stay 2-3″ up because will put in valley foam
10:25 Now you know the valley angle, you should be able to pop your lines
10:35 Check at first then you know your angles
11:00 Metal roof valley going down need to determine the angle

Doing a valley is getting the angles righthand I’ll show you how I do it. And of course, there’s other ways to do it. This is what I’m seeing some of them ever since before. And I’ve helped a lot already got started.

But it’s basically what I do is I take you’re going to be any color and this works. I wait for traffic and airplane traffic here. So what I’m trying to do is find the angle for this. So what I’m going to do is take a squared off, piece generally wanted to be around 36 inches or, or more than the mark it might notice that I’m kind of cautious on this roof because it’s best Be careful if you’re going to get on my recommendation to get on it.when it’s wet Alright, not that great.

So they don’t have this. So as straight as possible, then you want this point right here, which is not the lip, but actually decided the rib. To me, even with that line, if you popped. Get that you can take a pencil and mark it quite often I just take a tape measure and the classic mistake, which I’ve done bunches of times, as you measure on this,side I was thinking oh yeah, this is what I gotta do. But you don’t, because it laps over, it’s got to go down to the bottom of the other side.

So that won’t change the angle. This is 38 and a quarter angle. So I know that whatever the length of this is, I need whenever it’s square to cross I need to go 38 and a quarter up on this side and then pop a line or mark a line with a straight edge a then cut across, which I’ll show you that.

So what we’re doing next is getting this out of the way so I don’t fall off the roof. Measuring up the roof 243 All right, we’ll take it to the next level, we start measuring up that one angle, we’re gonna go down 243 although you can mark right here, if you can find it down on the side and 243.

So what I’m gonna do is measure from this end 39 three quarters and do the same over here. That way we have this point that was the same to me. We could pop a line across. We’re gonna do. We didn’t know that it’s 38 and a quarter up on that angle because we took that squared piece, which would be the same as going up there and 38 and a quarter, but we’re gonna go over here. In that point that we measured from here, you could do 243 over there.

Same thing, just a little shorter. We pulled that way. Then I go 38 and a quarter up on that. Shadow made a mark here. And it’s got to go to that 243 mark over there. So what I normally do when I work by myself, God bless your soul if you do work by yourself. Gotcha.

And I take my chalk line got to work in chuckling I thought I did. Remember it’s not to that marks to the one on the side. And they kind of hold a little bit on the loose, so it will pop down it. There’s the angle. These are us straights yellow handles but you can use green or red.

They just have stronger strength to turn left with green. I think it’s strong strength to turn right with red where straights a stronger going straight, but we can go left or right just they’re not as good.

Now one of the tricks that i was showing people earlier is I lift up on one side hold down the other side kind of encourage it to tear and then I use the snips to tell him where to tear turns a little bit sideways so I don’t have to interfere with where the metal folds up. Either cutting your hand or just getting in the way of working. There we go.

That’s how that part is done. I’ll show you some more as we go along. What I been doing is putting it on the rib taking care not to scratch existing metal and trying to sliding as close as I the edge Already got some screws on to two-foot centers.

I’ve seen it wider but I’ve never had a roof off center. I had a tornado warning. That’s it. The match tree damage. Trees either make a dent or sometimes in the country from the impact to foot center. I’ve never had a problem, so I’m not going to fix it. They want to stay in.

Now, whenever you’re screwing this off, you don’t want to get real close to the edge like stay about two or three inches up. Reason is we’re going to put in Valley foam afterwards. And I’ll show you how that’s done later, but you just do the same thing. You don’t have to measure every time now you know what that angle is, unless somehow changes back and forth.

We should have a straight valley where you pop the land on the sides and put it straight. So that angle B 38 and a quarter all the way up on this one.

We will check every one of them whenever I first started out, so I encourage you to be careful. But you can do it yourself. Just be careful. You got your friends. Again, watch the wind. You can take both of you off the roof. It gets to be too windy, just stop but it live another day.

Like better to be a live dog than a dead lion alright guys we did valley where you’re coming up.

This is going down and getting enabled. So what we had to do was determine that angle also. point this is gonna keep it straight to our line down below. And it’s showing. So that would be how you would get your angle. on the long side you have to cut it down

Metal Roof Penetration Installation – Metal Roof Penetrations 2 9-9-19

Okay, guys, there’s another delema that you run into is having to cut the penetrations for the roof. In this case it doesn’t fallout anywhere on. It’s going to go right over the top.

What I’m going to do again is to lap over, going to measure to show 4″ to 14. Then measured from the top need 13, which I can actually write there, make a mark and 23. That’s the area that I’m going to cut it and then I’ll show you how I cut. One of the ways that I can cut.

Okay, the 13 and the 4″. Let’s see a 4″ and a 14, actually. A four right there, right beside the rib. 14 right there, and then there’s a mark right here here, so we can… See the mark is right here. All right, so we have a square here, that we’re going to cut out.

Now, you can get snips and then cut it. But a lot of times it ends up being a real nuisance. Usually I use a sharper screwdriver than this, let’s see what happens. Using the hammer. To drive that edge through. We’re hitting that screwdriver. A lot of times it won’t go all the way through one side, from one direction. So you go…. There’s your hole.

So I have four different kinds of cutters at the Shears. I have the dual wheel, that spins different directions. I have nibblers, I have all kinds of cutters. You can use a saw and turn the saw blade backwards.

All of them have a risk of stuff getting in your eye. So this is not an old man. You, me? I’m old now, so you can do this without. Any special tools. We’re putting the vent over a hole that was cut. If you noticed the vent is much, the flange is much bigger than the ribs. So, what I do is I get the center of where that rib is going to be might no fall exactly in the center of the vent. And then I cut so that there’s a v, and then I can fasten these down. And these on the outside edge when it’s close like that I’ll let it get mashed down and fold it over.

But I’m going to do it on the top. Also. All right, and then when you fasten, you want to make sure you start in the middle, work your way out. That way. Everything’s so I’m spreading myself out. I’m going to go to the top.

You see how that vent, that v that I cut in that vent flange that’s around that metal to wrap down around. That way I can seal it all up, and it will have a good tight fit before you can get to sealing it. I don’t
recommend using a screw gun for a hammer.

I’m going to tell you something about sealant before I even show you how I do it. A lot of people, you’ve got some really high engineered and expensive silicones that come in tubes and they work, okay. Anything that
comes in a tube, is going to shrink and that’s why I quit using it. Because I got a ton of leaks and keep going back, because it shrinks after it dries. A little bit here and there. So I don’t do that anymore. No matter that companies are encouraging you to buy their thing.

So I’ll show you later how I seal it all up.
