And my insulation sticks out from the container wall 5.75 in so I need my roof insulation to go over that so that I can put a membrane over the whole roof to wall insulation connection.
The most commonly known type of metal roof [ in USA ] is a pole barn metal.
This is what we call an exposed fastener metal roof.
The pole barn metal is fasted with the screws exposed to the sun and weather which in turn can become damaged.
