Just to let you know, it's a quiet as can be when it rains. In fact, I didn't know it was storming the other night until I opened the back door to let the cat in. It was coming down in buckets. It gets too cold here to use sticks or straw, maybe if I was in the Caribbean though
I had a metal roof installed last spring. It was DECRA. Looks just like archetectural shingles. It is very good, Snow slides off without a problem, the big slope helps. We will use less oil to heat this winter. Usually about 950 gal for me in NH, I have purchased 725 gal so far and the tank has about 180 still in it. In fairness my house has been kept cooler this year (fuel oil at $3.58 it's no wonder
) but I do believe that some of the reduction is the roof.
It is Energy Star and will provide a Tax relief in some fashion but All State Insurance did not give me any discount, and I asked for it.
My Cost was $500 per square installed, Negotiated down from $700. However Aluminum metal price has been climbing, could be higher now. Penny, What did you pay per square and what kind of metal was is? DECRA is a GavAlume, with a baked poly coating and anti-skid surface. It is four layer product made in Norway I think.
