Hey, if you want to see alot of metal roofs, keep driving north to the U.P.
Extremely common up there.
I just put a carribean blue metal roof on my house about 3 years ago. Was
plagued with ice dams before that and now none. The ONLY drawback I see is
the snow sliding off and compacting next to the house. Unlike when I roof
raked the shingle roof, I was there to move the snow immediately before it
I am very happy with mine. More and more people are putting them on all the
time. I work in zoning and see some great metal roofs on half million

I really like the concept of metal roofs. My loony liberal side likes
that they are often made of recycled steel and are a better product
(environmentally) than asphalt, etc. The house itself is made from a
lot of recycled barn timber so it would only make sense.
Thanks for all the comments.
