Yes, the steel can be applied directly over shingles, there is no need to strap the existing roof. The #14 heavy duty screws that we use take a solid hold of the boards or plywood underneath. The shingles act as a good cushion and absorb noise to keep the roof quiet.

The myth of a metal roof attracting lightning most likely comes from the fact that metal can be an electrical conductor. A metal roof does not attract lightning any more than other roofing materials. Lightning is attracted to high points, thin points and structures that cover large areas. The likelihood of lightning striking your home depends on it's height and size not the building materials.
The most destructive element of a lightning strike is fire. Should your metal roof be struck by lightning, your metal roof would spread the electricity out eliminating the immediate impact. This is where the metal's fire resistant properties protect your home with it's non-combustible nature.
