    Learn How To Manually Crimp Metal Roof Seams

    Media-Play-128 (3)   Preview course

    Standing seam metal roof systems are a very popular option for building owners and homeowners. As with most roofing systems, the most critical component for long-term performance is the metal roofing details. Without attention to metal roofing details, the long-term performance of the roof assembly is always in question. One of the most critical metal roofing details is the crimping of the standing seams. Standing seams are the joints between panels. These seams typically run parallel to the flow of water. They are elevated above the roof deck to allow water to flow away from the seams. Metal Roofing Details: Manual Seam Crimping provides a tutorial for roofing contractors for using First Stage and Second Stage seam crimping tools. These tools are used in situations where manual crimping is required or where mechanical seamers cannot be used.

        First course of many for me.

        I started with this course to attain my basic (off hands) knowledge of roofing. Everything was explained clearly and displayed pretty well. I did notice towards the end of the video during the Second stage Seamer section that the individual doing the video utilized improvisation with the tool simply to show the effectiveness of the bend/seam (for the viewer) I also am aware that such tool improvisation was necessary as the segment of roofing used was for all intents and purposes a “prop”. A strong emphasis was not placed on the improper (or proper use) of the tool during this segment to notify the viewer which whether or not the segment would truly seal (or activate the compression tape) based upon the tool being used in such fashion.
        Perhaps my review is more of a question concerning the P.S.I. (pounds per square inch) needed to activate that “adhesive ooze”, If the pressure from having that “improper grip” does not meet the PSI needed to activate the ooze then wouldn’t a chance that poor weather conditions could result in a leak within the building from that seal, or would the lack of a complete seal depend entirely upon the location of the metal sheet?

          The internal sealant in the seam is a “belts and suspenders” back-up to the proper seaming of the metal panel. If the seam is properly crimped and folded there is less chance of water migrating through the system. In addition, the sealant in the seam activates at different pressures depending on the temperature of the roof. As the roof panels heat up, the sealant strip will become more supple.

        Wanted to learn the basics of this type of roof seaming operation. He did a good job showing the use of the tools. I would recommend the use of a sheet of plywood and clips to further demonstrate how they interact with the seaming process. Thanks
