We needed new roofing after only 13 years. Shingles were worn and lots of small leaks after a big rain. Although the metal roofing was twice the cost of regular shingles we decided to go the permanent route. Now when it rains we have no worries and this winter snow will not be an issue either. The 50 year warranty insures that in 15 years or so we will not have to re-roof. John the marketing consultant was great to work with and I would certainly recommend to anyone.
