Learning how to install a metal roof is one of the best DIY project that can increase the value of your home, lower the maintenance and increases the protection from fire. A metal roof is twice the cost of replacing a roof with shingles but it will last a long long time – 30 to 45 years. If a metal roof is properly insulated and maintained it can give you some energy savings throughout the year.
A metal roof completely seals out water, can survive high winds, easily sheds snow, resistant to fire, mildew, insects and rot. You basically get what you pay for.
Many people have taken on the task of installing a metal roof themselves… the key is to measure everything to perfection. Then measure two more times, lol.
