Q: I am in the process of looking to replace the roof on my mobile home. Is a metal roof a viable option? The winters can have a large amount of snowfall and the summers can have very strong storms and high temperatures with humidity. The roof is also flat, will that pose a problem? Thanks.
A: There are metal roofs that can be used on very low slope roofs. Ventilation can be an issue with these homes.
I would suggest seeking out a couple of mobile home roof replacement specialists in your area and then doing your due diligence to check out the solutions they suggest.

I am looking at a new mobile home that has a metal roof. It has no ventilation in the ends of the roof, however, it has the round roof vents installed on it. How well do these roofs hold up?
Generally you should expect a good long life out of it. But I could provide more insight if I knew better what type of metal roof you have. Feel free to email me at email@example.com
