Re: Metal roofing versus shingles

Sand River Co-housing has metal roofs - inside you can hear the rain, but that 
is pleasant, I wouldn’t call it noisy.  The roofs were installed when the 
community was built, so don’t know how the price varies with shingles.  They 
are guaranteed for 25 years.  In Santa Fe we do get snow in the winter, and it 
slides off these roofs.  Haven’t heard a complaint from anyone.
