Hello, Considering a metal roof and have a question I can not find an answer to. We have a double wide mobile home with an asphalt shingle roof. The roof has 3' wide (aprox) roof vents, 2 on each side, a sky light, a couple of vent pipes and 2 bathroom exhaust fan vent covers. How is the metal roof panel installed with the rectangle vents and the sky light? What about the fan exhaust vents? I have read about the boots for the vent pipes already. Also is there a code or something to determine the gauge of the panels? Thanks, Tony

Similar flashing details in metal but they often require onsite fabrication of flashing and pans. In some cases, there are preferred ventilation vents that are easier to flash, but a competent mechanic can make just about anything to work with his system. Flashing details and pans will depend on what type of metal you are running.
