Dan,
answered a craiglist ad, then stopped by the amish shop in spartansburg
rolling roofing tin. He has the machine right there.

Is a small amount cheaper that Ray Miller in N.Clymer.

Is probably not as good a product, but at my age I think my next
job I will give the young upstart a try. Who needs a 100 year warranty ?

Not knowing what your existing roof is, in Onterrible lots of folks have strapped over shingles, then added steel roofing. Can’t say it’s my idea or preference, but if it’s a temporary deal it may be an option.

You should insulate under the steel. Preferably with something impervious to water penetration. The steel will sweat, if the shop it humid and the outside air is cold. You don't need "rain" dripping inside the shop.

From watching a few reroof projects:
Get dome tarps or painting drop clothe to cover everything below.

All kinds of stuff will fall from the work above.

I even had to go and reset the tubes in my lighting from re-roofers walking around above.

I have a friend who did the opposite, had a fight with the county about permit compliance and screwed battens to a steel roof and fitted synthetic slate to em.

We thought of doing that also but the "slats" that make up the roof are in bad shape zome of them are falling apart from age. So strip the old roof down to the rafters, install new purlins then put down the new steel roofing.

Norm, there is an attic above the shop space, so precipitation should not be a problem. One friend had an insulated roof, it still rained on his shop.

KBS, I will cover stuff in the shop. I have a box of those cheap throw away plastic painters drop clothes. I got them in with a lot of tools at an auction house. I think I paid $5 for the lot of tools.
Johnboy I like that. That must have got the councils panties all twisted up.

Okay, set up the ladders to get the final measurements so I can get the roofing.
The measurements ended up...
Southside. 16'-2".
Northside. 12'-4-1/2.
So I may not order the steel for the south side cut to length. But the steel for the north side, I will order cut to length. I will have to check what the lead time is on that service. If it is too long I might just buy 8' and 9' panels to make up the length needed. Five 8' and three 9' panels.
Will find out tomorrow, as it is going to rain.
Dan

Well, I called out to the lumber yard I am going to get the steel roofing panels from, to find out how long it takes to get a custom length in. Two to three days.
The worst part of this job will be stripping the roof.
I am going to have to borrow the neighbors tractor to move the dump truck. I am thinking of turning it around and moving it back against the fence row. I will have to do some measuring before I am sure it will be out of the way.
