Hip Cap Installation

1. Cut the metal roofing panels as close as possible to the hip lines of the roof, but not contacting the

opposite side’s panels. Allow the metal panels to overhang the desired amount at the bottom of the

eaves (1-3” recommended).

2. Apply peel and seal starting at the bottom of the hip. Cut the start of the tape to match the

overhang of the metal panels. Overlap peel and seal a minimum of 3”. When at the top of the hip

overlap the peel and seal to the next side of the hip and/or ridge a minimum of 3”.

3. When installing the hip-cap start at the bottom of the hip. Either pre-bend or allow the hip-cap to

overhang the metal panels along the eave lines so they may be folded to give a finished look.

Overlap the hip-caps a minimum of 3”. When at the top of the hip installing the hip-cap, trim cap to

match hip and/or ridge lines of the adjacent sides of the roof. Then overlapping the previous piece

with the next and trimming to fit and lay flat to give a finished look.

4. Attach hip-cap flashing with minimum # 9 x 2” (1/4” magnetic bit) Wood Grip fastener through

each rib on both sides of the hip.
