"Metal roofs are very good. But you can't beat a tiled roof, a tiled roof solves lots of problems and are very easy to fix."

"When installed properly metal roofs can last a good 40-50 years. Considering it is resistant to fire, wind, insects, mildew and rotting it can pay off in the long run. Cons can include, very noisy in rain or hailstones, warping of the metal due to heat in the summer, and can potentially be easily dented. If not installed properly can open a new can of worms so make sure your fitter knows what he is doing."

"Personally metal roofing isn’t in my opinion suitable for housing but it’s each to there own. But in terms of using metal corrugated sheets for sheds, stables, dog runs etc yes it’s perfect for the job"

"metal roofing is pretty good but only if you get the right roofer who knows what he or she is doing because I've seen a few metal roofs that looks an absolute eye saw incorrect screws used that causes leaks etc. but get the right roofer and it will look brilliant and strong too."
