Can a metal roof be installed over an existing roof?
Yes, and no. The current condition of your roof will dictate whether or not you can install a metal roof over your existing roof. If you have 1-2 layers of shingles on your roof, long roofing nails and shimming can be used to run over our existing roof. If your plywood has structural issues or you have more than 2 layers of shingles, you will not be able to lay the metal roof over the existing roof.
