Screws for Metal Siding for Gable End (nS): The calculator returns the number of metal panel screws and the surface area in metal.
The Metal Siding for Gable End with Door calculator computes the length of each pane going left to right. It uses the height of the side wall to start, and then follows the pitch up to the ridge. When the panel get to the door area, they are reduced by the door height IF they are 100% above the door.
Because it is better to have too much and to cut it, than not enough, an additional 3" are added to the panel lengths.
Metal Panel Screws are a specialized product that include a gasket to seal around the screw head and prevent moisture from penetrating the roof or siding through the screw hole, and a screw tip that cuts through the metal panels and is self-starting. Metal panel screws often come in painted colors to match the metal panels. The screws are used to attach metal panels to purlins or sheathing for a metal roof or to girts or sheathing for metal siding. Metal Panel Screws are typically used with a density of 75 screws per 100 square feet of metal roofing or siding area.
