Metal roofing is a premium product and therefore can cost more than an asphalt shingle roof.  That said, metal roofing is comparable in price to tile roofing, and if you were looking at a new slate roof, you can expect a new metal roof to cost less.
Plus, installing a new metal roof can reduce any ongoing energy bills due to the increased insulation and could also add to the resale value of your property.
A newly installed metal roof would be expected to last at least 2 to 3 time longer than a regular roof.  In general a metal roof will last 40 to 60 years and beyond!
