In a nutshell, the difference between shingles and metal roofing comes down to price, performance and lifespan. Metal has shingles beat hands-down in the second two categories, and technically in the first too, as it's a one-time investment that actually costs less over the long-term that what you'll spend replacing that "cheap" comp roof over the years. There are other considerations as well, factors like warranties and eco-friendliness, so we encourage you to download our free guide and comparison sheet, check out the rest of the site, and educate yourself on the differences.
Even if you decide to go with a comp roof after all, you'll be making the decision after learning all of the facts.
