I live by the beach in Northern Ca and would be interested in changing my existing 25 year old wooden shingle roof for a metal one. My questions to you are 1)Since it never gets very warm here would the house require more heating than usual specially during the colder months ? 2) I have this idea that my old shingles are home to termites, would the metal roof still go over it or would I have to do something about it before installing the new roof ? Thank you.

If you're concerned about having termites in the old shingles, I would have them removed and then have a termite treatment done. Metal roofing will not hurt winter efficiency. Winter efficiency is always achieved through insulation on top of ceilings.
