Re: asphalt shingles or tin on old farm house

Our house has a 7 year old standing seam copper roof on it. Installers gave us a 40 year warranty, but emphasize it would last long after the warranty ran out. Life expectancy is something in excess of 75 years. The ONLY worry I have is that the meth heads don't climb up on my roof and steal it.

This past spring, we had a big hail storm. Everyone in the area with regular shingle roofs ended up re-roofing their homes. Ours had ONE dent and no other issues.

I have some of the original paperwork when the house was built in 1961. The copper roof cost ALMOST as much as it did to build the entire house back then.

Copper suits me fine also. Current price here is $975/square from the small roofers, more from the large ones. But that's over half labor. Not much skill necessary when the tools self-align.

Nice to know that I won't be up there re-roofing again.

Mark B., there're a lot of reasons I don't live in your neighborhood. Copper-roofed outbuildings work fine here. My house got even better, a green roof.

Hmm. Shouldn't your handle be "Copper-Roof Poor"? I'm sure it's a beautiful roof, but here in Motown one would be nuts to put a copper roof on their house. Come home from work and find your roof missing.
