I’ve been here on ActiveRain for about a year-and-a-half now and have often marveled at the collective wisdom and knowledge of the people here. I’m hoping to tap into that knowledge base for a recommendation.
I need to put a new roof on my house that’s located in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. There are lots of roofing companies out there, and each offers different products. Does anyone have a recommendation about whether to use traditional asphalt shingles or upgrade to a metal roof? Metal is more expensive, but it will last forever, although the higher quality asphalt shingles now are supposed to last 30 years or so.
Also, does anyone have a recommendation for an honest and trustworthy roofing company that does work in Farmington Hills?
Thanks for any input or suggestions.
