There are some important things to know when it comes to sheet metal siding installation. This includes understanding the worker’s compensation code 5535 that covers the installation of this type of roofing material. Here are some things to remember about this code and how it will affect your sheet metal siding installation.
Workers compensation code 5535 is an industry-standard that allows employers to be protected from liability when their workers injure themselves on the job. If your business has employees, you need to make sure that they abide by the law. The code also requires the employer to provide workers’ compensation for injuries that happen on the job. If you hire a contractor or subcontractor, the code also requires them to follow the standards outlined in the code.
It should go without saying that you need to hire a contractor who does not specialize in water storage tank installations. Contractors who specialize in water storage tanks can handle air leaks, water leaks, and water tank cracks with ease. They can even provide ventilation services for businesses that rely on PVC water tanks for indoor air conditioning and heating. If your company relies on HDPE, you need to ensure that the contractors you hire are also licensed to work with HDPE.
Another thing to remember about hiring contractors to install your water tanks and pipes is that they cannot work on the roof with anything other than a full set of HDPE goggles. This means that they cannot use regular glasses or paint thinners. If they do use paint thinners, they need to have a respirator on hand. This protects them from any health risks associated with fumes from paint thinners and HDPE. It is always best to have your workers use high-quality, long-lasting paint thinners on the roof as well as HDPE gaskets on the water tanks.
The contractors will also need a bucket with water and a hose to install the water tanks. They may not use an excavator. Do your research and find out what type of excavator the water tanks will be installed on. Once you know this, find out the weight limit that the excavator can carry. This will help ensure that the contractor can lift the water tanks and install them on the roof without any problems.
After the sheet metal siding installation has been completed, roofers will need to paint it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Make sure to have plenty of replacement pieces on hand because they are inevitably going to fall off. Ensure that there are no cracks or damage to the sheet metal as this will lead to more problems down the line. If the damage is severe enough, it could prevent the sheet metal from being installed properly. Go over the piece again with sandpaper to make it as smooth as possible before applying the paint.
When painting the sheet metal siding, you will need to use the same type of paint used during the sheet metal roofing installation process. It is a good idea to let the metal dry overnight so that the paint will adhere better to the metal. This is especially important if the weather is inclement. Apply the paint in even coats, allowing time for the paint to cure. It is always good to let each layer of paint dry between coats, especially if the weather is frigid.
After the sheet metal siding installation has been completed, you will notice some extra weight in the house. This extra weight will only increase the value of your home. Take care of your home and make sure that it remains in great condition, and you will find that selling your home will be much easier.
