Hello mfgrell, welcome to the Community.


Galvanized metal roofing can be cut with a variety of tools.  Sheers and tin snips, circular saw with metal cutting blades or a reciprocating saw can be used.  When cutting sheets with the saws you should have the unexposed surface up during the cutting process.  Any cut edges exposes the ungalvanize metal to the elements thus the possibility of rusting.


 Fabral is a manufacture of metal roofing products both painted and just galvanized.  They have a web site I suggest you visit before you cut your roofing.  You can explore how and why you should cut the metal roofing so it will not show rust or have any other problems.  They have a live chat option, listed under Support/Tech  that is very helpful.


If you need more questions please ask.
