. . . I took all my cash savings and spent it on a Steel Roof.
. . . The company was glad for the work and
. . . gave me a price equal to asphalt shingles.
We never hear the rain on the roof,
. . . snow slides off,
. . . there's no problems with leaks and
. . . it's one less thing I have to maintain.

You could also see if there is a way to buy recycled roofing from local roofing comapnies. Some of them might be willing to sell you metal roofing that that take off of projects that they are working on.

Another thing I like about installing a steel roof is you can leave your old shingles where they are. At least it keeps them out of the landfill.

We get a lot of hail storms here, and people with them have even said that plain old rain causes a racket.
But they are pretty.
And if bought in a light or white color, they would reflect the heat too.
(Couldn't use these-they'd never dry out)

. . . they make too much noise when it rains, everyone knows that.
I have a metal roof on my home, and there is no noise from rain, snow or hail.
. . . There are a lot of metal roof homes in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
. . . When I get a chance to talk to the people who live in one,
. . . not one of them complain about the noise.
The one thing they do have in common is,
. . . they are all well insulated.
I love to see the snow melt and slide off the metal roof,
. . . I makes a beautiful curl off the edge, before it falls.
Do you ever talk to people that live in a home with a metal roof?
. . . Is their home insulated?
