Question metal roofing

Am planning to lay metal roofing over the existing shingles. Am receiving conflicting advice . Some contractors say to lay 1x4 laths over 30 lb felt then secure the roofing to the slats. Others say "no lath needed" place the roofing directly on the felt. Does anyone out there have any experience with either method? Sure would like some solid advice.

Metal roofing manufacturers usually recommend putting the 1x4's between the felt and the sheeting from what I've seen.
