10. Fascia, Rake Board and Builders Felt
Nail the rake boards to the ends of the purlins along each gable rake and make flush with the top of the purlins.
Cut and fix the fascia board to the ends of the rafters, between the rake boards.
Cover the roof with builders felt prior to the corrugated roofing iron going on.
11. The Roof
Fix the roofing iron to the purlins with appropriate roofing nails/screws.
Fix to the top and bottom purlins at every second corrugation and fix to the intermediate purlins at every 3rd or 4th corrugation.
Fix through the high side of the corrugation.
12. The Ridge Capping and Rake Flashing
Standard ridge capping is about 130 (5") each side of the apex, but can vary and any size can be made to order.
Fix the ridge capping to the Purlin at every second corrugation.
