The installation process typically begins with measuring and cutting the zinc or Colorbond steel valley irons to the required lengths. It’s important to ensure precise measurements to achieve a proper fit and alignment with the roof’s contours.
To secure the valley irons in place, they are typically fixed with nails or screws. When using zinc valley irons, it’s important to use non-corrosive fixings to prevent potential chemical reactions between the zinc and other metals.
With Colorbond steel valley irons, self-tapping screws designed for steel roofing are commonly used for a secure and durable attachment.
Once the valley irons are securely fixed, proper sealing is essential to prevent water penetration.
Additionally, the installation of a ridge capping system is often integrated with the valley irons. Ridge capping is placed over the ridge line of the roof, providing a protective cover, and enhancing the aesthetics of the roof. It is important to ensure that the ridge capping is properly aligned and overlaps the valley irons to create a seamless and watertight connection.
Throughout the installation process, it is essential to follow industry standards and manufacturer guidelines to guarantee the integrity and longevity of the roof. Our experienced roofing professionals who are highly knowledgeable in working with zinc and Colorbond steel materials will ensure a successful and durable installation.
