Replacing metal roofing over existing shingles

Can I replace metal roofing over existing shingles. I have a continous leak on the back section of my house where I was told by a roofing contractor that the pitch of the roof is insufficient to allow proper run-off. I don't want to change the pitch, but just put the metal roofing over the existing shingles just in that section. Can I do that? thanx...

Yes But! You will need to select a certain type of metal roofing for low slope and then make sure it is tied in correctly with the upper roof. Select a roofing contractor from our find a contractor section on the web site.
