I put on a metal roof over 10 years ago. I noticed that the screws are rusting and that one part of the roof always seems damp. I went through my picture albulm and see that they did not put wooden slats down before putting on the metal. I am wondering if I have to replace my metal roofing due to this.[or can I take off the existing metal and put the slats down and put the existing metal back on] I don't know if this is feasible.

Very few metal roofs must be installed on slats. Send me some pictures if you wish of the roof as it now is and maybe I will have some advice. [email protected]

I really don't mean slats, Its 2x4 or something that goes over the rolled roofing in which the screws from the metal roof can go into. As it is now the metal screw are screwed into the plywood/a lot of the screws came through not hitting the support beams. I will try to send some pictures of the outside roof and the inside attic where the screws are. Will try sometim today/tomorrow Thanks

Many metal roofs simply secure to the plywood -- no slats and no connection to the underlying rafters. That is the uplift est protocol for most products.
