I have a 14-year old asphalt shingle roof. Shingles are Elk and have been problematic. One significant problem relates to the structure of the roof. We have a valley, where relatively low-pitched roof meets a very large, extremely pitched roof. A great deal of snow comes down into the valley from the large, steep-pitched roof. We get ice damming in the gutter and a snow pack in the valley with leaking. We are considering putting metal in the valley. Does this make sense? Would we have to replace the whole roof? Also, we have been unable to find a local contractor who works with metal. THanks.

Lining this area with metal makes sense but it will require removing quite a few shingles in order to work metal up under them and then replacing the shingles. To have this work done, I would suggest contacting either an experienced metal roofing contractor (perhaps you can find one through this website) or a sheet metal shop that has worked with roofing. Sort of interesting, don't you think, that all roofing materials, when they need something durable such as in valleys or other flashings, turn to metal as the best way to do things?
