Can Metal Roofing Be Installed Over Shingles? Here's What You Need to Know

Updated: Jul 6

Metal roofing is gaining popularity for its durability, longevity, and energy efficiency. However, homeowners often wonder if metal roofing can be installed over existing shingles. The answer is yes, but with certain conditions and precautions.

Can Metal Roofing Be Installed Over Shingles?

Firstly, it's essential to assess the condition of the existing roof. During our complimentary roof and attic inspection, we thoroughly examine the plywood underneath the shingles. If the plywood is in good condition and able to support the weight of the new metal roof, it's safe to proceed with installation.

To ensure proper waterproofing and protection, we install a waterproof membrane between the shingles and the metal roof. This additional layer acts as an added barrier against moisture and helps prevent any potential leaks.

Installing metal roofing over shingles offers several benefits. It saves time and money by eliminating the need for shingle removal, disposal, and roof deck preparation. Additionally, it reduces the risk of damage to the underlying structure during the installation process.

Overall, installing metal roofing over shingles is a viable option for homeowners seeking to upgrade their roof without the hassle of complete removal. With our expertise and attention to detail, you can trust us to deliver a durable and high-quality metal roof that enhances the beauty and protection of your home.
