need new flat roof on older mobile home

tombstonesMay 5, 2011

Hi, I own a 1972 Silver Crest double wide mobile home. It has the original roof (metal roof) I was wondering what was the best roofing material to use for a new one.

It does have three gables, a sun room and a roof pitch of less than 3/12.

Its not leaking yet, but I want to install the new roof before it does.

Thank you,

I don't know about anyone else but, if my existing roof were 40 years old and not yet leaking, I would replace it with another metal roof. Not only are they durable but they come in all styles and price ranges and are even being used on new stick built housing.
