Yes. When material is received, bundled panels should be inspected for moisture. If there is moisture, the panels should be separated and dried. Reasonable care should be taken when handling painted surfaces during installation in order to protect the finish. Although the painted finish is tough and provides impact resistance, dragging panels across the surface of one another will almost certainly mar the finish.
Protective heavy-duty gloves should be worn when handling metal panels and trim accessories. Use extreme caution when walking, sitting, standing or kneeling on metal roofing to avoid falls. Metal roofing panels may have a light coating of oil on them to help aid in the manufacturing process and protect from moisture prior to installation. Metal roofing panels can be extremely slippery when wet. Please see our resources page for more information on the proper storage and handling procedures of metal roofing.
