Any opinion on durability of metal roofs? The roof on my house is due to be redone in the next few years. I'd gladly spend more for a better product. My inkling is that the gasketed nails would be the weak point, not the roof itself.

Sounds like an add on doublespeak upcharge for nothing to me. Call another contractor, and ask them about it. Knowledge is generally free. Your present contractor may find that bullcrapping a customer is not.

This guy sums it up pretty well, though I still think the originally advertised lifetime claims was probably a recipe for disaster. But then again, you can't blame the novice consumer for listening to the product's instructions. Quote:My father in-la
