Installing Vistalux roofing sheets is a simple process that can be completed in a few easy steps. First, gather all the required materials. Next, loosely arrange the sheets and cut them to size.

Then, drill the sheets and prepare them for fixing. Finally, install the wall flashing at the top of the slope and fix the roofing sheets.

  1. Step one: Gather all the required materials. This involves gathering all the necessary tools, such as razor blades, screws, and nails.

Make sure to gather the correct size nails and prepare them according to the manufacturer’s directions. If you need to secure the sheets, use liquid nails or a silicone caulking compound. When trimming the sheets to size, ensure they are of an even thickness along their entire length.

  1. Step two: Loosely arrange the sheets and cut them to size. This step simply involves arranging all your sheets so that they are in one long line with uniform thicknesses throughout their lengths. Now you will need to cut the sheets to size.
  2. Step three: Drill the sheets and prepare them for fixing. Using a drill and a 1/8″ bit, make holes in the roofing sheets at regular intervals.

Make sure that you do not make these holes too close together, or they will weaken the roofing sheets. There should be at least 18″ between each hole to allow for ease of installation.

  1. Step four: Install the flashing at the top of the slope and fix the roofing sheets. Using a rubber mallet, tap any flashing into place against the parapet wall or fascia board while making sure it is square with respect to these surfaces. Then, use a nail set to secure the flashing in place.
  2. Step five: Install the shingles and seal the roof. Depending on your goal, you may choose to install either shake or asphalt shingles. In order to install shake shingles, you will need to roll the sheets into narrow ridges using a roller and knife blade.

Roll the sheets out to a length of at least 5′, apply two coats of underlayment adhesive to each sheet, and then roll the sheets in narrow ridges (2″ wide). Finally, install all four shingles and wait for them to dry before applying two coats of roof paint as necessary.

  1. Step six: Apply one coat of underlayment to the roofing sheets and reinstall the shingles. Apply one coat of underlayment to each sheet and place them on the roof. Then, place the shingles, capping off each shingle with roof paint.
  2. Step seven: Seal gaps with sealing compound or silicone sealant. If needed, you can use a silicone or waterproof sealant to close any gaps between your sheets or within the nailing channels used to fasten them together.
  3. Step eight: Repeat steps 2-7 at least once more before beginning step nine.
  4. Step nine: Seal off any seams with silicone caulking compound or another method. Seams in the roofing sheets (i.e., where two sheets meet) must be properly sealed to prevent water from leaking into your home.

The most common way to seal these seams is by applying silicone or waterproof sealant along the length of the seams and then smoothing it into place using a straight edge such as a putty knife. Make sure to allow adequate time for this sealant to dry before using the roof.

  1. Step ten: Clean your workspace and dispose of your trash accordingly. Be sure to clean all tools, materials, and areas where silicone sealant, water-resistant sealant, and adhesives have been used. In addition, dispose of all extra materials in a proper manner.
