Hello! I have a mobile home but I was thinking about removing my old roofing and installing a metal roof. I might be wrong here but I think it's possible. But does anyone know how to install a metal roof on a mobile home?

Make sure you don’t forget to make room around your roof vents and stuff like that. But I guess you have to cut out and remove all the old roofing before starting. Clean it and the then apply the insulation and furring. Then, you can put the metal material on and use the necessary tools to secure it.
I was looking this up for my grandma and found this source description which says that you have to clear away the old roof and scrap the roof clean before your start. Then, you can install the insulation across the roof and then lay strip of furring down secure it down with screws to the rafters. Press metal material with 4 inch overhang and insert foam closure strips and drill metal to furring strips. Overlap metals correctly or leakage could happen if you don’t do it right.

You got to place the metal pieces on right or it could create leaks later on.
