In Menards ad today , steel is 1/3rd  to 2/3rd  the price and has the highest hail protection rating when compared to shingles  .

Yup, Snow breaks solve the slide off problem but then the snow piles up at the snow break and takes three times longer to melt than if was still spread out on the entire shingled roof. This causes water dripping outside the door and freezing at night when the temps drop, that can become very slippery and cause a fall. With shingles you will have the same issue but for much shorter time. And if your my age, a 35 year roof is more than I need. So , Come On Hail Storm, and Welcome Back Shingles.

As a roofer in my younger yrs. Steel is better hands down. Many times you even recieve an insurance break. As for sliding snow thats why you install snow breaks 100% solves that issue.  A steel roof while out live you and probably your kids. Shingles 30 yrs if your lucky. Then you get to pay fpr the tear off and reinstall. Roofs love tear offs on shingles cus there is always rotten wood. Asphalt shingles DO NOT breath. Between the tar paper and the shingles they are masters at rooting your roof decking away

This is the 1st. steel roof I've had and I don't like having to get the snowblower or bobcat out to clear off the patio and parking area every time the roof slids clean, with shingles you decide when to roof rake and clean up. Plus unless you get a expert in steel roofing it looks like a chicken coop. I can tell you who not to hire in Hayward.

If it is the steel used on pole barns it is ridged so air movement  . The designer steel that looks like shingles  is probably  vented some way .

I would think steel is going to retain moisture not breath like asphalt. We will see in time when roof rot starts to happen because of steel.
