There is no comparison to the two systems.
Compare the metal roof to a designer shingle, the cost an longevity are closer with those two but the metal will still hold up longer if installed properly.
The metal roof will still cost more then even the designer shingle.
Like the first to posters said, what type of metal system and what type of structure it will be installed on will determine the longevity of the system almost as much as the installation spec's/workmanship.
Wow, now you have me thinking... The company gave me 2 options and I'll tell you what, I'm a little lost. (one is $1.85 lf and the other is $2.05 lf) I'm not too entirely sure what the difference is. I have a 51 square roof and I know it will cost a small fortune to have it in metal, however everytime I go to mow the lawn... there's another shingle off. I'm in a high wind area and a concerned with longevity. I appreciate all of your responses!!! Thank you so much!
