Ondura roofing panels

Post by Graham » Fri Jun 08, 2018 12:28 am

Hello all just want opinions. I have an old metal front porch roof. Looks brutal. Wanted to cover it with something like corrugated metal or ONdura type panels. Curious about your thoughts and how to install over existon metal roof

I would say you will need to remove the old metal to install new roof.

I've never been a fan of overlaying old roofing with new, regardless of of what you're working with.

1 - You don't know what's under the existing roof that needs attention.
2 - The new roof isn't going to lay as nicely over an old roof as it will on a clean deck.
3 - Single layer roofs last longer than multiple layer roofs.

Now, #3 probably isn't a factor in this case with metal over metal, but I still wouldn't recommend it.
