    metal roof on house

    Yes, "over plywood" is the key and warranty. I was surprised on the official recommendations of the manufacturer. I assisted the contractor on the installation and it went something like - 2X4 lateral stringers over the existing rafters once the old roofing and plywood were removed....16"...
