Metal roof for residential homes?


I put aluminum shingles on our cottage 4 years ago. Materials cost for the shingles and all the various trim pieces, special valleys, and starter strips was about 9 k for 1800 sq feet. All of it went down to the lake in one pick up load, and one boat load across. Harder to install than asphalt, but it's been great so far. Mfrs instructions said to use an underlayment like Grace Triflex, which we did.
Remove the old roofing first was the advice we got.

If you actually click or check the link to the happy face w/ thumbs up emoticon (instead of the roofer mike link, which I think is mike's standard footer/signature for his posts), it goes here:

I just took a quick look, seems to be a metal roofing supply distributor?

I interviewed for a job at a metal roofing company here in Michigan. They had some amazing looking roofing products. (http://www.americanmetalroofs.com/ga...oofing-gallery) The owner of the company told me that his business dropped off substantially when the economy took the downturn, and was just now getting back to previous levels.

I was amazed at the styles.
