Is applying metal tile or metal shingles over regular shingles.

Is it a good practice to apply metal tile or metal shingles over the existing shingles. Which metal roof is best in this area.

Here is a link to a short video in which I address this question of going over the old shingles: That said, you must make sure that you're meeting local building code requirements. If you're within 5 miles of the coast, I would encourage aluminum rather than steel. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have additional questions.
