Around here Central NY., Code enforcement will not let you apply more than two layers of roofing material. Also if applying steel roofing some local jurisdictions allow furing over one layer of shingles with 5/4 min. furing, and others require complete tearoff, and a screwing surface of at least 1.5". We get heavy winter snows and the steel roofs shed the snow, where shingles do not. Most all new roofs installed in rural areas around me are steel. I was a general contractor for 10yrs.until I retired, and have reroofed many houses and barns, and built lots of ag pole type and light commercial all steel buildings, so I'm a bit partcial to steel.

A PS to my previous post. Make sure there is a sound moisture barrier below the furring. Temp differentials will cause extensive condensation under the steel. In a well insulated house the unconditioned air in the truss space needs to be tempered by proper insulation above heated spaces with vapor barrier so that the condensation point (temp diff) does not occure at the underside of the roof.

And don't forget lightining rods! I think the code calls for a metal roof to be grounded too!????

You don't need lightning rods, but code does require an independent earth grounding connection. Good Point.
