I was wanting to put a shingle roof over my low slope tin roof i have contacted roofing contractors in my area with not much help.I have heard that the walls of my home will not support the weight of a shingle roof and i will need to build a frame around the extirior of the home to where the foundation will support the weight instead of the walls can you clearify what will need to be done thanks

I really cannot relate to the structural quiestions you have raised though the concerns expressed to you may be valid. However, as far as the feasibility of installing standard shingles over metal? I would not do it.

I have 100 SF flat tin roof with built in gutter covering a front porch. Whenever it rains the rust drips down all over the place. I want to use asphalt shingles and aluminum gutters. Can I plywood over the tin? Is there another way this needs to be done?

I would remove the old roofing.
