Thanks for the info so far. We live in Upstate NY so snow and ice are part of life. I'm just starting to look into the different systems of metal roofing so thanks for bringing up the standing seam roof option. When we do put a new roof on the house we're going to have to strip the old roof. My wife is totally on board with the metal roof idea and we've seen several houses lately that have them in the area. I also like the thought of being able to possibly increase insulation that looks to be possible with at least some of the systems.

One of the things that I didn't mention is that we're looking to put a porch on the front of the house at the same time as well as some other outside work and figure that it makes sense to get it done at one time. I also want this to be the last roof we have to put on the house if possible. We're looking to retire in the next 7 years or so. When we do retire we don't look to stay in the area due to no family and stupid NY taxes.
