Blue Metal Roof

Blue Metal Roof

Hi Patrick, No three layers of shingles is a no go. They need to be removed, plus the deck needs to be inspected before a metal roof is put on. Darker colors will help the snow melt for sure. How low pitch is the valley? What type of a metal roof is this? Standing seam, metal shingles, ribbed with exposed fasteners? Make sure the slope of the valley is in line with what the roofing system is designed for. I would say a minimum slope of 3 to 12 for standing seam. Metal Shingles would be 3 to 12 or 4 to 12 pitch depending on the systems. Once the tear off of the old rood is completed, have the deck inspected, you will probably have rotten or damaged wood from roof leaks in the valley. Make sure that a breathable synthetic underlayment is installed underneath the metal roof. — It’s a roof underneath the roof, plus it allows your roof deck to breathe.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo hsmeghan We have a large manufactured home (28×72) and we installed a medium blue metal roof on it when we first moved in 2 years ago (right over the existing roof, adding a layer of insulation and extending the soffits out a foot to avoid ice dams). Last year we had the same company install new insulated metal skirting in the same color. We also built an attached insulated metal shed in the back yard for our water system and a freestanding pole barn garage, both with the same color blue roofs (same company — Amish/Mennonite and they are hard workers — they got a lot of our business with all these projects and we’ve been thrilled with the results). The house is grey but needs new siding, and when we built the garage we didn’t like the shades of grey they had, so we chose a cream color, and will probably do the siding for the house in that color when we get to that. I think the blue/cream combo is great but I also love the blue and the grey together and would have chosen that if the available grey colors for the garage had been different. I love our roof and skirting and the garage. I don’t think the difference in wall colors between the house and the garage is a problem since the roof color is the same and kind of ties it together. Our house is hidden from the road so I’m not concerned with what anyone else thinks anyway. Hope you find what works for you. White goes with anything but so does the cream color and they are both neutral enough that any trim color would go. 1 Like Bookmark July 22, 2015 at 5:06AM Thanked by Katy Tillotson
