question on storage building


Can I put shingles on a metal roof on a small storage building? what is the process like?

The building I may get is approx 10 by 14.

Live in a subdivision and any storage building has to be similiar to the house.

I may have to paint the storage building to get it to look like my house but that still may not pass the review comm.

Thanks.

It would be hard to nail down the shingles.
If there is a wood surface under the metal, pull the metal off and shingle it. Otherwise, add the wood.

Ayuh,... If it's just a typical Tin Shed,... Paint it to match,...
I've never seen 1 that would hold the added weight of a wood,+ shingle roof...

Thanks.

It looks pretty well put together to me.

But it may not do well with all of that added.

Thanks again.
