Installing a metal roof over shingles is usually an option for our residential and commercial customers in Milwaukee, Madison and throughout southern Wisconsin. Two main factors that allow Metal Roofing Systems to install a metal roof over an existing roof are the condition of the current roof and any local ordinances. Some roofs are in such a poor state, that it may be necessary to tear off the roof first, but this is fairly rare occurrence.
