I had a roofer say that metal roofing could be to heavy for our mobile home. We have an older doublewide with a 1/12 pitch I believe. We like the looks of the metal roof and have heard there is a cost savings on utility bills. Where do we start in finding the right kind of roofing material for our home and how can we learn to install it? Pam

The 1:12 pitch limits your choices of metal. You will need to used a mechanically seamed standing seam. I would suggest using this website to find suppliers in your area. Metal roofing is much lower weight than most roofing choices so their comment about weight does not make a lot of sense to me. I always suggest going back and checking with the manufacturer of the home though.
