I have a ranch home with asphalt shingle roofing (~9 y.o.). There is an attached deck with a fiberglass roof. I want to enclose the deck as a year-round sunroom and install a metal roof that would fit under the edge of the existing roof so I don't have to cut into the roofline. I'm new at this and was wondering if this was a logical idea and what type of questions should I ask a contractor? I'm not that familiar with metal roofs and am trying to learn the pro's and con's. Thank you.

Really, metal roofing is not designed for this purpose. I am not saying that it couldn't work but you will run into issues with pitch, structural support, etc. Do a google search for Under deck dry system" or something like that. There are some products out there specfically for this purpose. I never suggest using a product for other than its intended purpose.
