I put down a good asphalt roof 16 yrs ago. Because of strong prevailing winds I've repaired parts of it each year for the last several years. The faces not facing into the wind have no damage other than the caps being beat up. I'm looking at putting down steel roofing to fight the wind damage. The brand I'm looking at is TERRABELLA. Specs include 52" by 14" with 2" overlap on end of shingle, 21 shingles per square, about 140 lbs per square, hidden fasteners about 100 1.5" screws per square, current Menard's sale price is $7 per shingle.
My questions are: Has anyone done this and how satisfied are you? Is it a do it yourself job. I've put down a lot of asphalt shingles over the years but just cannot carry 80 lb bundles up a ladder any more.
There are costs for specialty parts, drip edge, valleys, caps, etc. that I would have to figure in. I'm looking at good asphalt shingles at about $90+ per square with an expected life of maybe 20 yrs vs steel at $147 per square with an expected life of 40-50 years.
