Feasibility of metal roofing on 1/2 of a roof

The back of my walkout rambler in Minnesota overlooks a river bluff and faces sustained high winds. I have lost many asphalt shingles on the back side of my 4/12 roof over the years. The front is well protected and has never been damaged. A building covenant requires high grade shingles. The back of the roof can't be well seen by neighbors. The ideal solution would be to install metal roofing on the back of the home and shingles on the front. Is this technically feasible? Any ideas on how it could be accomplished?

Sure it's feasible but I'd still urge you to see if the covenants cannot be changed. Many times, such covenants were written by people who didn't know about the wide variety of metal roofing products which are available for residential use. If you do just half the roof, a special ridge flashing will be necessary. I'd urge you to hire an experienced contractor to do the work it at all possible.
