Snow Guard Bar Used near the lowest point of a roof slope. The Snow Guard is used to prevent ice and snow from sliding off metal roof panels. The Snow Guard catches snow and ice before reaching the gutters to allow a slow and even melt. Snow Guard is installed on top of the ribs above the outside wall of the structure. J-Channel Used to trim around doors, windows, skylights, and other square or rectangular penetrations in roofing or siding panels. Base Guard Used at the base of metal siding panels.

You can make a good cutting blade for sheet metal roofing out of a cheap circular saw blade. Go find your old used circular wood cutting blades, without carbide teeth, or buy the cheapest circular saw blade you can buy. There is no point in messing up a good carbide tooth blade. They can be easily re-sharpened. Circular saw blades usually cut about 1/8 inch wide. If you look at them, you will see the teeth are angled outward to make the 1/8 inch cut. But the blade itself is approximately 1/16 inch wide. So take the used or new blade and stick it in a vise. Use an angle (side) grinder to make all the teeth no wider than the rest of the blade. This is easy to do. If you do not have an angle grinder (like one a welder uses) then put the cheap blade in the circular saw and turn it against a grinding stone or grinding wheel. When you are done the teeth are 1/16 wide. All the grinding will be on the sides of the teeth. Do not grind the teeth off of the blade , only the sides of the teeth. When you finish, the blade’s teeth will be thinner, but the ends of the teeth are not shorter. This should take only a couple of minutes. Do not make the blade any thinner except at the teeth. This blade has no need of sharpening. It dulls up as soon as it hits the metal – and cuts fine. Now you can mount the blade in the saw and cut the roofing metal, but you are only removing 1/16 of an inch, a much thinner and easier cut. Metal roofing with ribs cuts easier from the back side(the down side when screwed to the roof). I use pencil lines, pop lines are too fuzzy. You can run this thin blade forwards or backwards, but after it makes a few cuts, the teeth are not sharp and direction makes little difference. This blade will last FOREVER. It will not need ANY sharpening. YOU, however, WILL need earplugs. The easiest place to cut metal roofing is on the grass. The metal sheets slide around too much on a bench or table. Lay a 2×4 on the grass and hang the end of the metal panel over the 2×4. Now your blade is not digging into the turf as you cut. I have cut painted and unpainted Galvalume metal roofing this way. If you get hung up or the blade is pinched by the metal, stop and adjust. The blade needs to keep moving so it does not get hot and mess up the paint on painted galvalume. P.S. You can get clean edges by running a 4 inch angle grinding wheel along the edge where you cut. This should be done RAPIDLY, to just remove the burrs. If you stop moving, the grinder will dig in where you don’t want it to. Don’t push hard on the wheel – just lightly remove the burrs left over from cutting. This makes a nice smooth edge if your cut was straight. I have found very little rust on these smoother cut edges and I live in a wet climate. I think the zinc in the galvalume migrates to the edge somehow.
