Metal compared to composite roofing

Barbara Deneris

I am wanting to replace my old shake roof with a new look-a-like shake roof. How do metal roofs compare to composite roofs as far as their realistic look to shake. Since real shakes are thick, I'd assume that a metal roof being thin, would not have that wood-like look. How do the two products compare in material and install price? How does metal roofing obtain the varying colors of a shake shingle? Thanks
