Going from composition shingle to a metal roof
I have a 1995 Silhouette 28x80 (76 actual) mobile home. The roof is shingled and extends 1 foot beyond the walls of the home. The roof needs redoing. There is damage in a number of places so the shingle will have to go and the damage repaired. I have a estimate using 30 lb felt, repairing the damage and roofing with either composition or metal. If metal, the mushroom vents will be removed and a vent running along the top will be installed. It's about $5000 for the shingles and $9000 for the metal. Warrenty on the shingles is 25 years and 3 year labor warranty. For metal it is 40 years on the metal and 5 on the labor.
Has anyone here switched from shingle to metal? Are you happy with your decision?
