I vote steel. I am doing that on my house now. Will get the rest done in the spring. I had to strip it as 3inch screws would not hit any thing solid. Striped it put on that 1/4 inch foam insulation under the steel, on top of the roof boards for a vapor barrier.I ran it up and down the roof. As said before contrary to what they will tell you when you buy it screw it on the top of the ribs. You can get screws to match the color of the roofing if you want. The screws with a cordless drill will work best. Custom Metal Sales in Greenfield Indiana can get you 24 gauge material cut to length of your roof out to 40ft one sheet. They can also bend the ridge cap and pieces for along the ends. They have a foam seal for the bottom of the roof to keep critters out at the bottom end. It also goes at the top under the ridge cap to seal the wind and weather out works good. fits tight. NO I don't have anything to gain from this. Except you being satisfied you bought a product you are happy with. I DON'T OWN any part of Custom Metal Sales. I put 18 long on my house and have done 22or 28 at dads. Did some 30ft 29 gauge on the free stall barn 25 or 30 years ago. The Screws are the only way to go holding it down. No dings from misses with the hammer driving nails. If you go with the heavy gauge steel you will want to drill it first. A drill about the size of the root of the screw works good. If you have access to a telehandler with a basket that is the cats meow for this work. You can put your sheeting or steel on the top of the basket and work from the other side. It will also move you up and down the roof so you don't have to climb or you can leave it at the bottom and lay a ladder up the roof to work off of.
