A builder I do work for is having me put some standing seam on a new build and he seems to value my advice on things. So the question. It is a fairly low pitch roof shed style roof , will be full ice and water on it, with the standing seam, He was wondering or thinking of putting Zip sheeting on it, See any need or value in doing that , think he said it is $ 60 some a sheet. It's his call in the end .

Thanks

Found out yesterday that the roof is 32 ft in length, 12" standing seam panels. So will have to figure out a plan o get them on the roof;

Longest panels I've worked with were 2'x76'. We had a few hundred feet of those lifted via crane. A guy that used to work for me did 150' panels, formed on site and lifted with a bunch of guys on ladders.

Fantastic. We'd do 30-40' panels in a similar way.

We just put a strap around them at each end, making them a tube and lift from the ground.

Quick and easy if you have a ground guy. If it's a tall barn, we set up a run of scaffolding for tools and to lift the panels.

I can see that for 3' panel and have done it. smaller standing seam does not work.
