Ok, we have a custom home being built in Las Vegas, NV. I have done a great deal of research and can not for the life of me see what I am missing. From the sounds of every thing there are just a whole bunch of pros and not many cons to metal roofing. Cost is not an issue in Las Vegas because the standard roof here is Cement/Clay tiles so we're already paying on the high end. I am very interested in the Metal roofing, one question I have is what am I missing? If metal a metal roof is so wonderful why doesn't anyone in Las Vegas really use them for residential purposes? I've attempted to contact 7 different contractors in Las Vegas to get information from them about pricing, and the pros and cons in the Las Vegas valley for metal roofing. NO ONE answered my requests. I work for a home builder and if everything is as great as it sounds it may be something we are greatly interested in for some track homes. I feel like I am missing something, no one will answer the questions I ask and no one will even return emails or calls. Can someone there help me with this matter?

There is some metal being used in LV and the energy efficiency of metal is a real plus there. However, for many years, the trend has been tile there and that is a tough thing to overcome as it has become the desired "look" there. Use this website to find some experienced metal contractors out there.
