Can You Install Metal Roofs over Shingles?

Many homeowners are making the switch and wondering: “Can you install metal roofs over shingles? Oftentimes, when people call Country Towne they know they are going to get quality roofing with metal products that have longevity. No other roofing material besides metal can boast of a 50 Year Lifetime Warranty. What they don’t always consider is that metal roofing can be installed directly over asphalt roofing (year-round).

This has a lot of advantages over the traditional shingle market.

You will save money right off the bat, as you do not have to pay for a roofing tear-off. This also means you will save your local landfill a heap of asphalt waste and save even more money by not paying any environmental fees.
