I meant metal roofs in a few places for decorative purposes.

What I was thinking about was replacing the roof one surface at a time. We have 
south facing and north facing roofs that would deteriorate at different speeds. 
But the people I talked to were horrified at the idea of two-toned roof for 
even a year. 

When we installed the solar panels last year, we replaced the whole roof with 
50 year shingles so we wouldn’t have to remove the panels to replace the roof 
shingles in a few years.
