would like some ideas on shop top

Problem: I have to replace the roof on my 30X55 pole barn, it has the typical tin sheets up there now, I could go with shingles and a new roof deck, or new metal (tin) sheets. either way it will not be cheap, as the existing tin has to come off, a real nasty job. what other options are there???? if any.... The local repair guy said I should go the shingle rout. I have not seen many pole barns with shingles up there, What do you guy's think.......The pole building is in very good shape except for the roof, which is starting to leak...

I have had a good result with snow roof on those kind of roofs..There is a fabric material used with that syetem that goes on to help seal the leaks..the base coat "sticky part" is black and then there is a white top coat..bit spendy but nothing like the cost of a new roof and will extend the life of that roof for several years..

The plywood and shingle is a better choice . But are the roof truss designed for the extra load ? In my area when they go with wood and shingles they space the trusses @ 24 inches where as the tin roof is at 48 inch spacing .

roof

Right....there spaced 48" apart, but there made of a very hard pine, I have to pre drill in order to pound a nail in.... here in Mn. the snow factor enters into the picture, the steel does a good job there, snow slides right off. the pitch is 4/12 ,shingles would add weight + the snow......Hmmmmmmmm....The sticky covering might be a option......

you can run strapping perpendicular to trusses at 16"oc that should handle 1/2" plywood easily,its what I did to my tin roof biult 24"oc truss.I got tired of replaceing tin every time the wind blew and the big oak shed its branches

If you get a good painted 29ga steel roof panel it will last longer than any shingle roof.I am a Fabral dealer and have it on my shop...good stuff. It's not tin any more.
