I have a carport that needs a roof. I have a company that I have contacted to engineer and build the roof for me, but the roof sheeting and some other items they do not stock- and I would like to buy these from another company.
The problem is, I do not know how much to buy. I cant work out how much material would cover the roof as there is a 20 degree slope on the roof plus roof sheeting needs to be cut, there needs to be a little bit more for waste, sheets will overlap etc- its confusing for me.
In total there is 3 building products that need to be worked out and measured out etc. I will supply measured detail for the raw product as well as the cost to buy it from the store, you would then work out how much I would need to buy, as well as how much it would cost me.
The three items are roof sheeting, battens (you may call them purlins) and also ridge capping. All are steel products.
I am looking at having this done within the next 2 days. Successful applicant will...
