Installing in bad weather

Guest User
I hate to keep bothering you guys, but I seem to have missed the best stretch of weather we've had in a while here. So now I'm looking at 50's - 60's and rain in the forecast as far as I can see. I'm installing exposed fastener painted metal roofing to osb (no battens) with Grace tri-flex too. If I get caught in between rain showers and end up with water in between the metal and underlayment, will it dry out? It seems the closures would keep it from drying easily. How about between the osb and underlayment? I'm thinking that would dry on its own. I know I have seen unprotected new constructions going up where everything gets wet for weeks and weeks.

Hi Ted. Thanks for the question. It will dry out. You do not need to worry that it will cause a problem.

+1 It will dry out as Todd says. Underlayments are designed to be vapor permeable.
