How to Install Metal Roofing: Eave End Panel Hemming

Today on the Metal Roofing Channel we are back to best practices in installation. Thad is on the road in Denver, Colorado to meet up with the Sheffield Metals assistant technical director Dave Stubbs. Dave demonstrates how to hem the eave end of a metal roofing panel. Stay tuned for next week’s video where he demonstrates how to hem the box end of a metal roofing panel. Be sure to comment below with any questions!

NOTE: The technique of bending the tab to close out the female side of the panel does NOT affect the performance of the metal roofing system. It is purely aesthetic and often creates a nice look, but is not required.
