The USA Today article states the cost of a metal roof to be 15% to 50% more than asphalt shingles. What is this based upon? What product is 15% versus which is 50%? I am building new multi-family apartment units in Southern California and am looking for an alternative to asphalt shingles. Metal alternatives I've researched are so far prohibitively expensive. Please help me find the products which are only 15% to 50% more expensive, or does this statement not hold true for new construction?

Bill, Metal roofing is available in many styles covering a wide price range. The lower end tends to be through-fastened "sheet" roofing and then it goes up through various standing seams, shake, shingle, and tile profiles, and then into exotic metals such as copper, etc. Pricing will vary from area to area as well so I really cannot validate the statement in USA Today as far as the percentages of additional cost.
