Default roofing question

Can you use sheet metal on residential roof as if your doing a porch?

There is lots on the market, and welcome to the site.

There are metal panels with ribs in them that are used on roof applications. I would not suggest using flat sheet metal for roofing.

Oh yeah, to House Repair Talk.
