Once the roof is clean, laying a new roof is not difficult. There is a step by step procedure of laying insulation, furring strips, corrugated metal roofing, foam closure strips and setting the gables.

The subject of whether it’s a good idea to add a second layer of shingles is much debated in the roofing industry. Be sure to get an expert’s opinion before you make a decision.

The main benefit to installing a metal roof on your mobile home is the insulation that goes beneath it. A thick layer of foam insulation helps deaden sounds on your roof, greatly reducing the noise that’s common to a mobile home. At the same time, the insulation also helps improve your energy bills, lowering heating bills in the winter and cooling bills in the summer.
