Exposed Fastener Metal Roofing


We are doing a carport.
The customer insists on exposed fastener roofing so that they can mount a solar water heater in the future.
The heater panel installation calls out using metal roofing mount screws as anchors.

Can anyone recommend an inexpensive system with fairly large sheets.
Home Depot has 2' x 8' I think.
I'd like bigger so fewer components.
It's just a car port so it doesn't have to be 100% watertight.

Also the roofing will not have plywood or roof underneath it. Just mounted to strapping so it needs to have some integrity of it's own.

Plastic, Aluminum or Steel are all potentially fine.

I apologize if I could have easily found the answer by searching.

Thanks

Talk to any lumber yard. They should be able to order you steel to the length you tell them to. I would put some plywood under there. to eliminate most of the noise when it rains.

We are really an engineering service firm.
Hadn't considered the commercial yards.
I'll check them out.

Thanks
