Metal roofin it..

This morning me and a couple of friends are going to start putting a metal roof on my house.. We had some high winds several weeks ago and I lost half my shingles..

One of my problems is my satillite signal for my pc is connected to my roof line.. Im doubting that I can remove the satillite, put down metal, replace satillite in same location.. So i may lose signal until next week when I can get someone out here to adjust it.. I will try my best..

Metal is expensive, especially if you pay somebody to do it.. Any of ya'll put on metal here lately?

I used to install Satillite systems, and actually your dish is not suppose to be attached to your roof. It can be but is not recomended by either Dish or DirectTV. Anyway, you should be able to call them and have that Sat dish re-installed for free so you are getting the best possible signal that you can get. And without a line toner, and monitor your not going to get that yourself.

Your right about metal and expenses, now remember its also very sharp. You will want to have an over hang of 1 finger joint, and did you get drip endges to run along the face boards?

Have a fun day at it, and be safe.

as a former sheet metal worker all i can say is watch your fingers and palms

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
