There are metal panels that screw through to that would on the face of the metal that are simply nothing more than fancy barn tin. The problem with fancy barn tin panels is that the rubber washers overtime will dry rot and fail, thus, creating a roof leak that can undermine all the reason a metal roof was chosen to begin with.
After the roof design and material has been decided, give some thought to the type of eave overhang you require. The overall design of the roof will be the deciding factor as to how much eave is required, but you should choose a color and material to blend in with the overall design.
Modern metal roofs are built to withstand years of abuse from severe weather such as hail, extreme winds, and snow. Hail will not dent a metal roof, and extremely high winds are not a threat either, as many modern metal roofing systems are rated for 120mph winds.
Can metal roofing be installed over shingles?. The simple answer is yes. The dichotomous nature of installing metal over an existing shingle roof requires many steps. We will examine these steps in greater detail to help determine if retrofitting a metal roof over and existing asphalt shingle roof is an innovative idea.
