I have designed a few neighborhoods and a lot of new homes now and always
specify standard ribbed metal roofs (occasionally 'standing rib'). They last
longer and can be recycled as opposed to being dumped in landfill. The
system I use is actually cheaper then "shingle" roofs even without factoring
in the longer lifetimes.

Have any cohousing communities used metal roofing? It is longer lasting and
greener than shingle roofs, but more expensive. If installed correctly it is
not supposed to be noisy.

If not a community, has anyone experienced it in other homes. Would you
recommend it?
