I have recently installed a metal roof on my home. I have installed approximately 7 roofs with metal without problems. During installation of my roof, I have now begun to get electrical shocks. Does anyone know how to find the source of electricity. This is the first time I have had this problem. Not sure if I have ran a screw into a wire or have a short somewhere. Does the roofing need grounded?

This is tough. My guess is that a fastener has hit a wire that was run in the ceiling / roof. I assume you do not have attic access to view form the underside? I remember running into this once before on a cathedral ceiling. They were able to isolate which wire it was from inside the home and disconnect that wire and run a new wire in its place.
