04-24-2022 Panel Installation

This week construction slowed a bit the winds kicked up preventing safe panel installation. We also had some items to discuss with Worldwide Steel, the building supplier. Incidently, they are a real pleasure to work with and are always very responsive. So the concerns and answers are below.

  1. Q: Do the side panels require a "stich screw" to hold the edges down? A: No, these panels are designed to not require stich screws as the panels lock together quite well.
  2. Q: Do the roof panels require mastic to prevent water infiltration at the edges? A: No, the roof panels are on a 5:12 pitch which does not require the mastic. The 2:12 pitch panels are on the patio covers and are continuous in length. 
  3. Q: The garage door jams are damaged in shipment. Can they be replaced? A: New ones are on the way (timing TBD)
  4. Q: Are the windows water proof as installed? It looks like water can get behind the panels. A: Yes they are water proof, The J trim prevents water instrusion. In addition, all panels and windows will be sealed with closed cell foam insulation. 

Our electrical service gets pulled and hooked up Monday, and that is a major milestone. Now all the trades can use that instead of the noisy and costly generator. Yay!
