Assume they are roughly the same price, which is strange but true.
Ask tha toof.
With all this enthusiasm, I should have made this a poll!
Is he a roofer?
is this for the doghouse the wife keeps you in??
Kinda. This is for the lake house that I escape to.
sounds like a Poker Palace
If by architecural shingles, you mean those asshole ashphalt shingles with the gay profile, then metal roof hands down at even twice the price.
I think he used to work roofing.
See that's what I thought. 40 years. I'd never have to worry about it again! But NOW I've suddenly got two roofers separately telling me that the screws they use to put on the metal roofs have these rubber grommets on them that dry and come off. Suddenly you've got water leaking through the holes and onto the wood. Soon, you've got roof problems and don't even know it.
One guy said, "Yeah, they guarantee the roof for 40 years, but they can't guarantee those screws we're supposed to use for 5 minutes."
Metal is only like $500 more. The issue is post #11.
EXACTLY what it is.
holy fucking crap, you didnt ask which one would last longer...im just saying i like metal better than asphalt as a textile.
Are you going with a standing seam deal? Corrugated with simple overlap? whathaveyou?
IDK much about metal roofing but a quality shingle can last pretty fucking long and there are lots of people who know how to install/repair. You can get 40 year warrantied asphalt shingles.
Speaking of gay profile, where's Mario?
roofing has always bothered me, seems like such a labor intensive scam. in 2012 there has to be a cheap material that you can throw up there & forget.
