I would like to install metal roofing on a new porch roof that is attached to a two story house. The porch roof is 4 on 12 OSB - shed type center with sloping ends. Three sides of the porch will be open to the elements. What should I use to cover the OSB before installing the standing rib metal and are there any videos available showing metal roofing being installed on an attached porch roof? I would appreciate any help. Thank you

I am not aware of any videos showing that specifically though there are a lot of metal roofing videos on Youtube. Make sure that your underlayment meets local building codes as well as the requirements of your roofing manufacturer. Personally I would suggest an Ice and Watershield product. Your roofing manufacturer should be able to provide complete installation details. If they can't, really, I'd suggest seeking out someone who can.

+1 Pretty straightforward install. Check with the metal supplier and they might have install videos in addition to underlayment requirements. Make sure to get your counter/wall flashing correct.
