500 square foot roof.
What's a square?
I just read an article in the paper that tells me that Boulder Co. is one
of the most dangerous fire counties in the USA (third most dangerous as I
They went over the details of a fire about ten years ago that burned over
50 homes. Metal roofs were mentioned as a common precaution against fire.
Also the county has a "wildfire mitigation plan" that is decided on a case
by case basis by the county people. It involves thinning trees within 30
feet of your house, and thining underbrush, etc.
So a metal roof is looking attractive. Are they really easier to install
for the owner-builder?
Thanks for the info!
