metal over shingles

I'm in northern New Hampshire and have a second home that needs a new roof. It has one layer on shingles I'm wanting to install a metal roof over it. My plan is to install Grace Tri-Flex over the shingles then the metal roofing. No means of taking shingles off because of disposal. So will this plan be OK?

metal over shingles

Carefully read the instructions of your metal roofing.
But.... Probably not allowed.

You need a proper slip layer regardless and if the poly in this case is rated for the heat...you are good.
