Venting a metal roof


Do I need to vent a standing seam metal roof? If I do, what is the best way to do it here in the Tampa Bay area of Florida? I am replacing a shingle roof that has a ridge vent.

Thanks,

Your tinny should have a detail.

In other words, your standing seam installer should have dealt with this previously, and have a product, material or application which will result in the coorect ventilation of your roof

Thanks,
The metal roof doesn't need venting for longevity, but the attic might for moisture and heat exhaust . More info about the structure would help, but there shouldn't be any reason why the metal roof couldn't be ridge vented as well. Are you installing this your self? What type of metal roof? Snaplock, true standing seam, corrugated?
