A proper sheet metal roof may have a higher initial cost. But in the long run, it ensures lower energy consumption, good weather-proofing, no pain-staking headaches of leaking issues, it is low maintenance, and it will avoid future costly re-roofing jobs.

Use of non-ferrous metals ensures these roofs lasts a life time and will be totally recyclable in the future.
