Hi, I'm purchasing a new home, and it has a corrugated metal roof installed. From the inspector's photos it appears to have a good amount of rust (but no holes), and he mentioned lots of nails loose and water damage at the peek. I'm leaning towards removing all the panels myself, then having someone fix the water damage and install standing seam, but I'm unsure if that's the way to go or if I should attempt to have it repaired.

Since this is a home, I'd say that the way you're leaning is the way to go. If it was a garage or barn, I might say it's with the risk to replace the fasteners and clean up the rust and paint it and try to get a few more years out of it. That is a high expense and high risk procedure for a house though,
