This is the seventh part in a series on how to build a pole barn or pole garage. This video shows how to install the metal roof and metal trim.

    First, I want to say: this is an incredibly well-done and helpful video series! I really, really appreciate the thought and effort you put into presenting this information well, and I learned a ton. One note I wanted to make on the 'bubble-wrap' insulation, whether it's double-bubble or otherwise: for the purpose of actually insulating an enclosure, the stuff is pure snake oil. There is no magic physics loophole that allows a 3/8" thick layer of bubble wrap to provide R7, R8, or whatever else the manufacturers claim these days. The reason those manufacturers haven't been bankrupted by false advertising lawsuits is that they managed to construct a hypothetical installation method in which it does actually perform that way. The thing is – it's an installation method that is so arduous and impractical that anyone reading the spec would go "you've got to be kidding me". It's also an installation method that would preclude its usage in this exact scenario, namely sandwiched between trusses and sheet metal roofing. I've no doubt that it fulfills the need stated here – to catch condensation and provide a kind of 'oven' to evaporate that condensation – but its insulation capabilities in this installation are negligible at best.

    Double bubble has no R value

    Instead of drip edge… I'd use eave trim

    Those who can't think of many things at once put the fasteners in the ribs. Those who understand physics, want tight fasteners, and a stable building with fantastic triangular strength place the fasteners in the flats.

    I would never have a metal roof installed with exposed screws.. doesn't matter if you screw them in properly..eventually, they will fail and your roof will leak within the first 5 years… if would have been better if you had done the Standing Seam Metal option.

    Great video, thanks for posting. A little lemon water to wash the goobers down before speaking works for me. Thanks again.

    This information is very helpful to me on my pole barn build. I chose to fasten on top of the rib too. Same reasons. Thanks brother.

    Just found this series – and it was very informative. As for working alone … I am with you there – it sucks. Things go better with help. Like one person can more than double the productivity.
