Metal Roof Fasteners

Metal fasteners are used when installing –
  • A new metal roof on a residential home, business or commercial building
  • A post-frame or pre-engineered steel building for an equestrian, agricultural, farm animal or product storage facility
  • Garage for an RV, boat or farm equipment

Using the correct fastener for your job is vital to the success of your business.
Here is our top 10 list of what to look for when buying metal roof fasteners:”
  1. Use the right fastener. Screws and fasteners have metal-to-wood and metal-to-metal applications.
  2. Use a fastener that has a large washer.
  3. Hi-Lo threaded screws are used in metal-to-wood applications. (Tek screws are used in metal-to-metal applications. Stainless steel screws should be used when screwing down aluminum metal roofs. )
  4. Protect against corrosion and rust by using mechanically galvanized fasteners.
  5. Variety and choice matter.
  6. Instead of carbon steel screws use stainless steel or zinc aluminum cap screws.
  7. Look for and use fasteners with a strong V-neck head to prevent product breakage while on the job site.
  8. Coordinate color of roofing screw with roof panel color.
  9. If you needed the screws yesterday look for quick ship options.
  10. Use fasteners from a reliable company.
