Although it might be a little expensive upfront, you need not worry about further maintenance as metal roofing requires very little care. However, if you do not feel the need to hire any kind of professional help, you can consider doing it yourself at saving on the cost.
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.
New 1×4 wood strips must be installed vertically and horizontally every 24 inches throughout the roof plane on the horizontal from bottom to top. It is highly recommended to use wood screws to attach the new 1 x 4 wood strips. After this is complete and a holistic approach to the entire roof, then, it is time to install the roofing panels.
One must look for dark spots, moldy spots, water trails on plywood or roof decking, and or any cracked or split rafters. This should be done with great care, for one mistake can damage your ceilings or cause significant injury to oneself. After these things have been validated to be okay, then, the next step is to start preparing the roof.
