Metal Panels and Trim for Shed Roof (TL): The calculator returns the following:
A Shed Roof is a roof with a single slope (see picture). Shed Roofs are used in simple agriculture buildings and state of the art modern buildings. The Metal Panels for a Shed Roof calculator is meant to help with material estimates for a roof. The rafter length uses the pitch (rise over run) and the span, which is the width plus the two overhangs (front and back).
The number of screws are based on 75 per every 100 ft2 of area covered by metal panels.
In all cases, confirm your estimates with a professional estimate and adhering to local building codes.
