I have a 5 on 12 roof currently with asphalt shingles. I have had issues with ice build up and would like to have a metal roof installed. I supplement my oil furnance with a wood fired water boiler. The system functions well, but I have some issues with the discoloration of a portion of my asphalt roof due to the creosote that occurs on a small portion of the roof. Is this an issue if I install a metal roof. Is there a product that can be applied to prevent or enable any potential build up of creosote/ Thank You

Shouldn't be an issue of any real concern. Creosote is typically reactive like a mild acid if I recall so occasional cleaning should keep it from damaging the roof metal.
