My advice to O-B's is PLAN PLAN PLAN PLAN, STUDY STUDY STUDY (your info was the best I've found - thanks.) Plan some more. Using your tools helped (contracts spreadsheets, etc...) Study planning timelines.

We went back and forth on if we would have the metal accent on the garage, but thought it would tie into the house (if the house ever gets built). The bids from the local roofers were far too high for our budget, so after talking with others on the site we decided to order it and do it ourselves -- we're handy. After several bids, we found that ordering through Sutherlands was the best price. Most other companies were adding on $500 plus for crating and shipping. Sutherlands purchased through a company that had a local distribution center, so no shipping costs.

We wanted to buy straight from the Metal Sales Manufacturing Company but they said they can't sell to the public. Regardless, the roof cost came in at $1,200 and while the area is not that large, it is a standing seam roof, heavy gauge and all the panels were factory cut to our dimensions. So all that was left was the installation... but we didn’t want to install until the painting about the roof was done, so we waited and waited and waited and now... IT'S COLD and there is still no roof installed. The weather here is hard to figure, some days it's 50 and the next is 30. I finally gave in and called around to the local roofers again but found that they didn’t want to mess with it. A. It was too small of a job (they apparently have too much work or money), or B. They don't do standing seam installs.

I did find one good company that will be installing the roof next Tuesday/Wednesday for $500. All in all, it's a lot less than the bids we got up front, but I sure could use that 500 bucks someplace else. And the time we saved by hiring out the roof can be spent finishing the trim paint so gutters can go on. I'll post pictures once the roof is on.
