A reader's Roofs and roofing question: Lap or cut roof sheets?
Michael from Perth W. Australia had this question wether to lap or cut roof sheets.
I am installimg a garage roof. It is 6100mm long and will need 8 sheets of corrugated sheeting per side, which adds up to a length 6400mm.
My question is, will it be better to cut one sheet down to size to make it fit or to overlap an extra corrugation on about 4 sheets to get it to length.Cheers
