Re: Roof Help???
You cannot put the metal DIRECTLY on top of the shingles, the old shingles will wear holes in the new metal. You can, however, strip the old roof with 1 X 4 or 6 hemlock boards, then install the new metal over that. I have done that many, many times with no issues ever. The metal will outlast you, and saving $800 is a good thing. Just make sure your guy is stripping out the old roof with new slats and you will be fine.
