That will certainly work, but make sure you don't "nail" the planks down to the roof to hold them on. I have seen such nonsense before is the only reason I would mention it!

If you do double lock standing seams, you can lay planks between them and put plywood over top. That will protect it during construction.

My house is currently clad with 12 yr. old asphalt shingles, but originally had Buckingham on the main roof and flat lock (possibly steel) on the porches below. I have some damage to the porch and have a few leaks. In a perfect world I'd love to go back with slate someday and am considering standing seam for the porches. I can afford standing seam right now, but slate may take a while, if ever.
Question is, If I do standing seam now - and say in a few years have to replace the main roof - how much risk is there of damage to the standing seam from construction? Is there a way to protect it from falling slates, shingles, hammers, or whatever?
I can patch up this roof in a few places for probably a grand and "get by" awhile longer till both roofs can be done, but it sure would be nice to enjoy the metal roof now since it is within reach. Looking for some practical advice here, tough decision.
