Easy to install. Make sure to measure properly. You need to mark out 24 inch by 24 inch. Comes only in 8 ft and 12 ft panels, no 10's. Calculate out 1 panel for every 2 ft.horizontal 1/2 box screws (1 inch for vertical walls or 2 inch for horizontal roofs) for each panel. 1 package of horizontal runners (use for roof, not needed for walls) for each panel. My store didn't carry the vertical runners. They actually are not needed but a 1x2 also works for this. I used the 1x2 for the last side end. Panels are difficult to cut with normal scissors but manufacturer recommended cutting 3 panels (gripped together to prevent vibration) at a time with a saw. Leave a 3 inch over hang on ends. I dry fitted my first 2 panels as the cost is a bit high to accidentally cut too short. I used tin snips which worked well. Make sure to place your cut ends to the back (mine up under eves, to hide the cut. The runners pared down easily with the tin snips too. Be careful installing screws. Make sure they are perpendicular and do not over tighten. If panels become dimpled you over tightened it. Install screws on the ridge for roofs and valleys for walls. Do not install these on a windy day. Anything over 8 miles per hour is a bit windy. You can place boards on top of them to help hold them down till they have been fastened. Once installation is complete and you are sure all your screws are in, caulk where the panels meet other structures. Also check periodically after the first few rains for leaks and caulk those. You can caulk where each panel meets but so far I haven't found this necessary. I found only 2 small leaks. 1 where this roof met an existing one and 1 where I accidentally over tightened a screw. I installed the solar gray, matches existing roof and creates shade without blocking light. I do hear some sound when it rains and I am nearby but not really much louder than that. The sound of rain hitting my air conditioner is louder. FYI these do not come with instructions but you should be able to see the PDF on the item page I also checked manufacturers site.

Have used this on 2 projects and about to install on a 3rd. The 5/8 inch height is very low profile, perfect for Pergolas and Decks!

PUT THIS STUFF ON THE ROOF OF MY DECK. IT CRACKED A SPLIT WITHIN A FEW MONTHS. SLIGHTEST WIND CAUSES IT TO SPLIT AT SCREW HOLES. REPLACED ENTIRE ROOF METAL WITHIN 2 YEARS.

Using the appropriate roofing screws and little pressure, I secured the panels to the top of my fixture. Within days I noticed some leaks in certain areas. Upon inspection I noticed the panels had cracked in multiple areas.
