Metal roofs are put on homes with dormers all the time. Here are some keys: 1) Choose a metal roof that is appropriate for the design, style, construction, and roof pitch of the home. 2) Hire an experienced installer with a proven track record. 3) Ensure that factory-formed installation procedures are followed and factory-formed accessories are installed. 4) Ensure that the walls on the dormers are flashed before the siding or stucco is applied to them.
