Can metal roof from a barn be used on a house?
I've had a message here on roof/attic ventilation and I appreciate all the replies. When I found out the cost for metal roofing, I gave up on that and guess I'll have to use asphalt shingles. However, I'm wondering about something. There is an unused old chicken house on the property (it's a farm) with lots of metal roofing just lying there. The walls have collapsed and the roof is lying on top. Can that roofing be used on the house? It ought to be enough material as the chicken house is bigger than the house. Or it is just not practical? The metal would have some age on it. There would be nail holes. But if the panels could be trimmed off where the nail holes are, and if they're in good condition, what do you think?
