RESIDENTIAL APPLICATION GUIDE

for ULTRA-VIC

The following brochure is a step-by-step procedure for reroofing a residence. Great care must be taken to use the proper flashings

and fittings to insure a perfect, long lasting, leak proof roof. Many inexperienced applicators try to cut corners but the

end result is a roof that fails! Please follow this guide and if you have any questions, contact your Authorized VICWEST Dealer

for further information. VICWEST offers this installation as a guideline only and assumes no responsibility whatsoever regarding

improper installation or improper use of its products.

RESIDENTIAL APPLICATION GUIDE

for

ULTRA-VIC

STEP 1

Draw a diagram of the roof or structure that you will be

cladding.

To accurately estimate and order your new VICWEST product,

all measurements must be precise and included on your

drawing. Include all valley lengths, cottage roof hip lengths,

dormer sizes, rafter (measure from centre of ridge to outside

of fascia board; do not deduct from this measurement) and

ridge lengths, and the location and sizes of all chimneys, skylights

and vent pipes. It is also important to know the approximate

pitch of your roof, as it is imperative that flashings

and ridge vents be made to suit.

To determine the pitch of the roof, measure horizontally

across the gable end and mark a distance of 12”. From this

point, measure the vertical rise of the roof. This will give you

the pitch; e.g., a 4” rise in 12” will be a 4:12 pitch.

(See diagram opposite.)

Have your VICWEST Dealer estimate your requirements.

STEP 2

Once you have received your new VICWEST panels and

accessories, you are ready to proceed with the application.

Cut off the overhanging old roofing flush with the fascia. Replace

or repair any damaged or deteriorated fascia boards.

Check the structural integrity of the roof framing and repair

any areas requiring attention.

STEP 3

Using a minimum of 1” x 4” standard or better lumber, install

nailers around pipes that protrude through the roof. Check

the MASTER FLASHTM /RETROFIT MASTER FLASHTM section

on page 14 for the location of the nailers. Then install nailers

down the valleys and along ridges, hips and any other

place where a flashing will be required. In each case, check

the flashing for the proper location of the nailer. If Snow

Guards will be required, check the detail on Pg. 8 and locate

strapping accordingly. You may want to add the strapping for future

requirements.

STEP 4

Strap the rest of the roof with a minimum of a 1” x 4” standard

or better lumber, placed at proper spans. Span information

is available from your Authorized VICWEST Dealer.

It is recommended that strapping be screwed to the roof as

nails will pull out after a time. Be sure that all nailers are

level - shim under nailers where necessary.

STEP 7

Begin to apply the sheets. Be sure to start your sheets square,

and in the case of ULTRA-VIC, lapping the short lap over the

full lap, as per specifications. It is recommended that you

pre-drill your sheets where possible, by measuring the centres

on your strapping and marking the sheets accordingly.

This procedure will give you an aesthetically pleasing look,

as you will have straight rows of screws on the finished roof.

Always pre-drill and cut the sheets from the back side, ensuring

that all metals filings are wiped from the sheet. Apply

the sheets with nylon head skirt flange screws. Great care

must be taken that the washer is compressed but not overtightened,

as shown in the diagram opposite.

Note: Lap joints should face away from prevailing winds.

STEP 8

As you proceed across the roof, install flashings as required.

STEP 9

Fasten ridge cap and/or vented ridge using nylon head

screws at each rib. The use of Large Tab Foam (over sheet) is

highly recommended between the cap and the sheet.

NOTE

VENTED RIDGE CAP, RAPID RIDGE OR VICWEST’S

VENTED FOAM CLOSURE (shown on facing page)

(FOR ULTRA-VIC and VIC/ELITE) IS A MUST ON ANY

VENTED FOAM CLOSURE

FEATURES & BENEFITS

VICWEST Vented Foam Closure is designed to fit underneath

your Ridge Cap, giving a clean unobtrusive appearance.

It provides 4.5 sq. ins. of free air intake per lineal foot

of closure or 9 sq. ins. per lineal foot of ridge. VICWEST

Vented Ridge consists of 3 basic components. The Front Vent

has bug screen and weep holes, the central component is a

Rain Baffle and the Back Vent has a glue line for ease of installation.

N.B.: This Closure can be combined with our Residential

Endwall RE-8 to create a Ventilated Endwall.

INSTALLATION

1) Keep your roof sheet back 2” from the ridge line.

2) Peel paper from glue line on Back Vent.

3) Place Closure Vent on panel with weep holes to the

front.

VICWEST 10’ RIDGE VENT

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

1. Apply roof cladding leaving the required opening for the

VICWEST 10’ Roofline Ridge Vent (2 3/4” wide x 120”

long).

2. Install the ridge cover over the roof cladding up to the

edge of the roof opening.

3. Each vent carton contains 2 end flanges and 1 connector

flange.

– End flanges are used when vents are installed individually.

Install end flanges on the inside of the vent end panel

as shown.

– Connector flanges are used between vents when running

vents continuously (do not use end flanges here!).

Butt two vents together with the connector flange underneath

at the joint. Both vent end panels fit between the

two tabs on the connector flange.

4. Install the vent over the opening using the proper foam

closure to suit the roof cladding profile. Make sure the

foam closure does not block drainage holes in the roof

flange.

BRICK CHIMNEYS

It is recommended that, when a brick chimney is present in

a re-roof application with VICWEST steel, a saddle be built

on the back of the chimney to deflect snow and water

around the chimney.

See Pg. 9 for additional trim options.

COTTAGE HIP DETAIL

If re-roofing over shingles, strap up each side of the hip,

checking the flashing (hip cap) for proper placement of the

nailer.

Cut the angle required on the steel panel and install on the

hip. Apply Valley & Hip Sealer down both sides of the hip

and screw the hip cap on, using a Woodgrip screw at each

rib as shown on the drawing.

STEP 10 OPTIONS

SNOW RESTRAINT

Drifts of snow and ice accumulating on top of homes may suddenly

cascade down and off roofs. This can tear off gutters and

cause damage to people or objects below.

The potential for snow pile-up on a roof can vary greatly, depending

on building location and geometry. If significant loading

is expected on a restraining system, an engineered system

appropriately anchored to the building structure should be investigated.

If minor loading is envisioned, one of the following

options may be appropriate.

1. SNOW GUARDS

Snow guards may hold back or retard the movement of snow

or ice.

2. POLAR BLOX

This polycarbonate product is intended to solve the problem

of ice and snow movement. This item must be installed in accordance

with the manufacturer’s directions:

1) Apply a transparent silicone sealant to the base (non-acetic

acid type on Galvalume or Galvanized roofs).

2) Using 2 self-tapping #14 screws

w/neoprene washers, screw through the

Polar Blox and roofing material into the

purlin or structural support.

INSTRUCTIONS - STEP 1

Draw a diagram of the roof or structure that you will be

cladding.

To accurately estimate and order your new VICWEST product,

all measurements must be precise and included on your

drawing. Include all valley lengths, cottage roof hip lengths,

dormer sizes, rafter (measure from centre of ridge to outside

of fascia board; do not deduct from this measurement) and

ridge lengths, and the location and sizes of all chimneys, skylights

and vent pipes. It is also important to know the approximate

pitch of your roof, as it is imperative that flashings

and ridge vents be made to suit.

To determine the pitch of the roof, measure horizontally

across the gable end and mark a distance of 12”. From this

point, measure the vertical rise of the roof. This will give you

the pitch; e.g., a 4” rise in 12” will be a 4:12 pitch (per diagram

above). Have your VICWEST Dealer estimate your requirements.

STEP 2

Once you have received your new VICWEST panels and

Begin to apply sheets. Starting from left to right, depending on

the prevailing wind direction, fasten the first sheet at the gable

end with a #12 truss head screw on 16” centres up the entire

length of the sheet. On the flange side of the sheet, fasten same

as gable.

2nd Sheet: Starting at the top or bottom, place sheet lap over rib

to cover screwed down flange. Lock panel in place by tapping

rib with a rubber mallet, traversing up or down the sheet again

to make a tight lock.

CAUTION: Do not start at both ends and snap together towards

the middle!

3rd Sheet: Same as 2nd, and so on.

Check regularly to ensure that the sheets are square and adjust

accordingly if out of alignment.

STEP 6

At the bottom of the sheets, install three 1” screws in the flat

area of the sheet as per the drawing on the right. At rib overlaps,

install a 2” screw in the top of the rib as an aid against the

sheets pulling apart.

STEP 7

As you proceed across the roof, install flashings as required.

STEP 8

Fasten ridge cap and/or vented ridge using Woodgrip screws at

each rib. The use of Large Tab Foam (over sheet) is highly recommended

UPLIFT COMMENTARY

Wind uplift to be resisted by the roof panels depends on a

number of factors, including building location and height,

roof shape and construction, etc.

Uplift will also often be higher near the corners and/or the

perimeter of the roof area. In many cases, installing Vic/Elite

as described in the application guide is satisfactory.

If wind uplift is expected to be higher than normal, fastener

spacing closer than 16” is recommended.

Under some extreme conditions, it may also be necessary to

provide additional stitch fasteners at the ribs to prevent the disengagement

of the side lap.

Cut the angle required on the steel panel and install on the

hip. Apply Valley & Hip Sealer down both sides of the hip

and screw the hip cap on, using a nylon head screw at each

rib as shown on the drawing.

ENDLAPPING VIC/ELITE

(if required)

(Use a 6” to 8” endlap)

1) Apply complete lower course of roofing panels

2) Stop end the upper end of the lower course approximately

15° up. This creates an anti-siphon area.

3) Use a pinching tool to compress the ribs the same length

as the overlap. The compressed rib will now accept the

upper course of roofing panels.

4) Apply two rows of 1/8” Butyl caulk across the lap. Locate

the first bead above the bottom edge of the upper

course position and the second bead 1” above the lower.

5) Apply the upper course of roofing panels, overlapping

the bottom course by 6” - 8”.

6) Install a fastener (with washer attached) in each flat area

between the two rows of Butyl caulk. Also apply a stitching

screw on top of each rib.
