Metal versus Traditional Shingle Roof

125306 Views 14 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Teetorbilt
Hi all, this is my first post here. Anyway, I'll start with the first of many questions I hope to get answered here. My wife and I are designing our "dream home" now and we're trying to identify the construction type and materials we'll be using, so anywho.

1. How do the costs of installing a metal roof compare to using traditional asphalt shingles?
2. How do the lifetimes of each product compare?
3. How much extra/less preparation is needed to install a metal roof (versus the shingles)
4. Having never spent any time inside a house with a metal roof, is there any aesthetic value inside the house? I.e. can you hear rain tap tap tapping on the roof?
