The negatives though are that, as an inexperienced roofing installer, you could potentially run into issues when installing a metal roof.
When you buy a DIY metal roofing kit, you’re getting everything at cost. If you’re working on a small budget, this is perfect. Laying down metal roofing is relatively straightforward and the materials themselves are easy to transport. If you’re comfortable working with metal, this can be a fun project with a lot of reward at the end. As a roofing material, metal is high quality, looks great, and will last you fifty years or more.

One of the big advantages to selecting metal as your roofing material is the number of colors and styles you get to choose from. Whether you’ve chosen steel or aluminum, choose from several colors and customize it according to the look you want or the appearance of what surrounds your home. Curb appeal matters in this day and age, contributing to your home’s overall value. Be sure to select what represents you and your neighborhood best. Please note choice of color does not affect metal’s fire resistance properties or your roof panels’ ability to perform during harsh weather conditions. When it comes down to color selection, it’s all about look – not performance.
