Need ideas for adding a screened in sleeping porch

Can we just extend existing roof out? Thinking of replacing shingle roof with all tin

I can definitely recommend a metal roof. I had mine replaced last year, and I've found my electric bill has dropped 10-15% overall. It also lasts at least 30 years although guaranteed for 20. Old shingles are not ordinarily removed; this seems wrong, but unless there's damage to the decking, it's the norm, and having shingles removed will cost extra. Metal costs about $500 more than shingle, but takes less time to install. Get at least 3-4 bids from local roofers. Ask for locations of customers so you can see their work. Good luck.

The main reason for going with the metal roof is the piles of pine needles that accumulate & stick to the shingles in the fall. Thank you for your comment:)

We did a wrap around deck with screened in sleeping porch off the cabin's main room, I call it the front room facing the woods!
Turned out awesome:)
