Metal roof for mobile home

Roof is currently a 4/12 pitch with asphalt shingles. Client is thinking about a metal replacement. If they decide on metal, should strapping be installed or is a weather guard mambrane then the metal screwed directly to the sheathing okay? Opinions are welcome. Thanks.

Depends on the manufacturer.

Direct to deck is acceptable in many cases as long as there is a slip layer as you must protect the metal from scratching from the underside.

An over deck vent would be helpful if the venting and insulation layers are not sufficient and you are loosing a bunch of heat resulting in rapid melting.

Whatever you decide, just remember you are only allowed one roof on a mobile home. Gotta tear the old shingles off.

And, no, you do not need batts. 30# felt is adequate for underlayment.
