Q.Do you nail metal roof panels through the ridges or in the flats?

A. Corrugated roofing is always nailed through the ridges. Metal roofing panels with wide flats, however, are usually nailed or screwed through the flats to form a solid connection to the sheathing or purlins. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines, and always use fasteners with rubber washers.
