I am currently in the process of installing CB-10 Titan standing seam panels on my roof (16 inch on center and 24gauge) and I have noticed some severe Oil canning. I noticed that even the short six foot panels which were formed on site had multiple waves in each panel prior to installation. I also observed that when the manufacturers rolled this product out on my work site the surface on which they were working was not level. Could this effect the degree of oil canning? I know that a certain amount of oil canning is to be expected but I have looked at over 20 homes with a similar product and have never seen this degreee of deformity. I have halted installation and hope to meet with the manufacturers to discuss this issue. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Chris, I think you're doing the right thing. If you go to www.metalconstruction.org and go to Publications, there is a document on this subject which you can download. I doubt this has anything to do with the uneven surface when the panels were produced. It is more than likely inherent to the metal they were using or perhaps due to improper adjustment in the machine.
