There isn't anything wrong with that type roof. It's like anything else, it depends on the skill of the installer whether it leaks or not.

The only steel roof I think will not leak is a standing seam one. They can last 50 to 100 years with care.

The new style with the screws in the flats will leak. The rubber washers will deteriorate in a short time.

(quoted from post at 04:49:23 01/14/1Cool I doubt that. All metal roofs leak.
The facts remain a sheetmetal roof expands and contracts constantly and works on the fasteners and elongates the holes and all of a sudden, roof leak.
Only a fool would install a sheetmetal roof and expect not to leak


He did say "Standing Seam" ........not too much chance of it leaking, I'm thinking!

(quoted from post at 19:57:23 01/13/1Cool Thanks for the link--very informative. The material is 26ga. 304 stainless. Quoted cost is 190.00 per hundred sq. ft. Some of the Amish in this area are putting it on their barns & houses. Some local roofers are using it on their own homes. Drip edge, valleys, ridge cap & screws are all stainless. Thanks again.

Is that the installed price including all valleys, ridge caps, trims, etc.?

Moms house was built in 1938,it still has the original roof on it and the only leak was at the dormers,and that was cured with modern caulking. Of course I am not sure theses modern houses will hold up a slate shingled roof.

there are way to many old metal roofs out there for anyone to be able to say all metal roofs leak. I've got an old bakery shed with the original metal roof that's at least 150 years old that's never leaked once. Many abandoned farmsteads around here the only building that are still worth a crap are the ones with the metal roof. The asphalt shingled ones all go to crap. Anyone who says all metal roofs leak does not know what they are talking about.

Really, only a fool? I worked as an insurance adjuster for many years and found if installed correctly they gave less trouble than a shingled roof. Depends on quality of metal and installer just like any other roof.
