GBlist: Costs of metal roofs -Reply

I agree with John Bower--my own (limited) experience is that you can do
a metal roof (5V or corrugated galvanized steel) for only slightly more
than asphalt shingles when you consider the materials reduction from
solid decking to 2x4 or rough-sawn 1x8 nailers and the labor savings.
Also, with a little guidance, this kind of roof is easy to install--as long as
the roof is simple!
