Roofing fun...

I had to do some repairs on the low slope roof part of my house, and as I was up there getting all messy with asphalt, I thought to myself, I cant wait till they come out with Kerdi-roof. All the innovation in other areas of homebuilding, and yet most roofing is still just asphalt and tar, yuck.

you would have to thinset the shingles down since you couldnt nail through the kerdi

or a steel roof.....
they are getting popular down here in Florida.
not all homes look good with them but I like them better then the terra cotta tile roof.

I am going to build a detached garage/workshop in my backyard soon. I am leaning towards going with a metal roof.

I've done metal roofs almost exclusively in new construction down here, Gregg.

They are somewhat "traditional" in this area, but if they weren't I'd still favor them.

The ones shown in Brian's pichers is of the standing seam variety, but that is one of the more expensive possibilities. We do a lot of Tennesse Vee, sometimes called Five V, or just Vee Crimp. Installed with screws and neoprene washers, it's well within DIY capabilities. Requires some attention to detail, but makes a nice roof.

Don't be sold on the price of any of the 29ga. versions of any of the available styles. Insist on 25 or 26 gauge, whichever is available in the chosen style.

But if you can find a good standing seam installer within your budget, that's the better product.

My opinion; worth price charged.

[Edit]

Oh, and I forgot to mention that down here the idiot builders and designers alla time wanna pewt the roof alla way up on top of the buildings, and to point'em up inna air at great angles like some of them in Brian's pichers. Gotta have ladders and sometimes ropes and what all else to work on'em. Great PITA, that.

Best to see if you can't pewt yours onna ground and leave'em flat. Lots easier to work on. Safer, too.

Not Kerdi but a similar product. I've been communicating with this company. They've been in the roofing membrane business for thirty years or so, and now they've come out with a tile ready roofing membrane. It has to be installed by company trained installers, though. Check it out.
