What are the pros and cons of choosing between a metal roof and an asphalt shingle roof?
Our house has asphalt shingle roofing and we are currently getting bids for replacing it. It's a gable roof, 4/12 pitch, about 1600 sf).
So far we have a few bids for asphalt shingles and we thought we might as well check into a metal roof while we are at it for comparison. We had one company come out and prepare a bid for a metal roof although we haven't received the bid yet.
Just thought I would check in here to see what your thoughts are. We have heard metal roofs will cost more but last longer, but there is probably a lot more to it than that.
