Default metal roofs

I'm simply.posting this to help folks that are considering putting a metal roof on their home. There's a few things to research on metal roofs understanding where the snow will land on the ground and hopefully not damaging landscaping or landing in front of your overhead garage door we're it hardens like cement from the impact. But in this picture I want folks to see what happens when hiring a "roofer" always research their history and never take the lowest price . What I'm showing here in this picture is what NOT to do. When applying metal roofing over a asphalt roof you must put down strapping first. why? The two roofs will move independently with temperature changes and eventually the metal roof from the granular friction of the asphalt will prematurely fail. Now I'm sure I'll get a few ego responses from the " no it all's" but trust me a good roofer would not do what's in this picture.

Why in the world would you put metal over asphalt? They expand and contract at different rates and it is not advisable to put a metal roof on top of an unlevel soft base

Cheaper install. Also, voids any and all warranties

We had a new metal roof installed last fall--we had the asphalt shingle roof removed down to the sheathing although it was still intact. Expensive, but worth it I hope. How long is this new roof going to last me?

The bigger question is why would a reputable roofer blindly cover a roof that looks like THAT? What are the odds there may be hidden problems under shingles that look like they should have been replaced years ago?

Epic FAIL.

This is the kind of thing that house flippers do. Lipstick on a pig.
