In the process of having metal roof consultations and have a question regarding finishes. One contractor says that a PVC coating over the metal is superior to a painted finish that another consultant uses. Also, full length sheeting vs, 1'x3' panels. Lastly, nailing panels down versus screwing? Lots of questions, looking for unbiased answers. Thank-you.

I suppose the old rule stands that if you as 10 people a question, you will get 10 answers and usually only 1 of them is correct. Obviously they will try to sell against one another but that does not change what might be correct. Can you post more specifics about the finishes that are being compared. In terms of the nails vs. screws debate....I prefer screws but most metal roofs can be done properly with either.
