Putting house on market and the owner is having new roof put on. She wants metal for understanding it will also increase the value of the home. How would you determine the increase in value, from installing the metal roof, how to adjust the price of home.?

Cost vs Value Reports usually say that premium roofing projects add between 65 and 85% of their cost to the home's value.

+1 to Todd's feedback. Here are the numbers: http://www.remodeling.hw.net/2013/costvsvalue/division/west-south-central/city/austin--tx.aspx That being said, I don't think it properly quantifies the impact and visual improvement of a good metal roof. When you think about it, the roof is the single most visible surface on the home. Going with something that really sets that off can have a massive impact on resale value.
