CHANTILLY, VA — The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association (SMACNA) has published Residential Sheet Metal Guidelines, a new reference manual on the proper fabrication and installation of exterior sheet metal in residential buildings.

The new manual covers such topics as roof drainage systems, decks, chimneys, windows, doors, and ledges. The 130-page guide presents details and explanations based on and designed for low-rise residential buildings, up to three stories, that are used as single-family and multi-family dwellings.

In addition to generic detail drawings, design data located in certain sections and the appendixes will help users adapt the drawings to local climate and project conditions. According to SMACNA, carefully examining the information along with the local climate conditions will enable manual users to select the proper details for practically any residential architectural sheet metal application.

The first edition of Residential Sheet Metal Guidelines is available for $75. The non-member list price is $108. Purchases may be made online at www.smacna.org (website).
