Snap-on metal roofing vs. traditional folded on site
Anyone experienced with the differences between a traditionally installed metal roof (metal formed and folded on site) versus some of the new snap-on type metal roofing systems? I like the look of a traditional metal roof, but some of the quotes Im getting are well above my estimates (it’s a very simple roof!). The snap-on system I’m considering is the same type steel and gage. I’ll also be installing solar PV on the south-facing side at a later date. Will a snap-on actually be cheaper? Will it last as long? Will it work well with PVs installed on it? What are the drawbacks? House is in upstate New York region. Thanks for your thoughts.
