Hello Gentlemen, I am interested in a Metal roof for a small corner porch area. However, my plan has the roof line of the porch with a "curved" area (i.e. porch extends lower than roof line). Is this "curve" possible with a metal roof? Do you have go with something like cooper to get bend/curve? Thank you for your time.

I am sorry but I am not sure I understand exactly how this is curved. Depending upon exactly how it is curved, there are undoubtedly several metal options available. I would seek a product you like and then inquire with the mfr pertaining to your exact needs.

Thanks for your input. With regard to the specifics of a "curved" roof, It would be similar to the look of a cooper roof over a a bay window. Where it starts on the side of house at a higher point than finish point. Somewhere in the middle there is a slight curve or bend to get to finish point. This way the roofing is better "seen" to add to the curb appeal of home. I like the dark look of the metal roof vs. the green look of aged copper but do not know if this bend can be accomplished with a "metal" roof material. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Most of the shingle and shake profile metal products will easily work on this. Most of the through-fastened products will not work. Some standing seam products are available pre-curved from the manufacturer or an experienced sheetl metal person can create curved panels by hand. I hope this helps.
