I’m looking for advice on a new roof for our house on the east end of LOng Island NY.
The details, the house has two single slope sections of 2/12 pitch with new installed decking. One section is aprox 18sq the other aprox 3sq. 4 penetrations in the larger section
I like the look of standing seam metal but so far the estimates I’ve gotten are IMO insanely high (1500-1700) for coated steel. Never even bothered to ask for copper. After that I’ve been looking at GAF Everguard TPO with the glued on standing seam profiles but I’ve called several roofers but no luck finding anyone that has installed it before or willing to do it (commercial projects only).
EPDM is not the look I prefer and asphalt shingles don’t come recommended bc of low slope.
Can anyone confirm that the estimates for standing seam are way high and what would be more reasonable?
Or should I consider DIY? I’ve been reading up on this but am not convinced yet even with the simple design of the roof. A manual and videos make things look a lot easier than real life.
Advice or alternatives are greatly appreciated.
