How to cut sheet metal roofing with a 7 1/4″ circular saw. Roofing metal cuts pretty easily with a skillsaw using a cheap carbide tipped saw blade. It does not need to be an expensive saw – a cheap saw will do just fine. Place your sheet metal roofing on a solid secure flat surface and cut as you would thin plywood. The only difference is that you will set the blade depth much deeper to cut metal. Be sure to wear appropriate safety gear such as hearing protection and eye protection! This can’t be emphasized enough! Close fitting, wrap around safety glasses and good quality ear plugs or ear muffs are essential. Cutting sheet metal with a circular saw is extremely noisy and can be very dangerous with flying metal shavings. A metal cutting shear is one of those tools that is handy if you are a roofer, but a tool that most people can’t justify buying for just one job. A cordless sheet metal shear is nice if you buy one since there is no possibility of a cord getting cut by the sheet metal. You may have to replace the saw blade after cutting a quantity of metal roofing panels as the carbide teeth tend to fall off. Some people say to run the blade backwards. I have never tried that since the metal cuts so nicely with the blade running in the proper direction.
