Am getting ready to purchase a couple of Legacy MH and was wondering if it’s worth the extra $1,000 to upgrade to shingle from metal roof? Also, wondering if worth extra $1,000 for the Smart Panel siding vs. the vinyl.Thanks!
If there is additional profit in upgrading then it’s worth the expense otherwise no.
I might be biased here because I love metal roofs, but I would definitely not pay more for shingles. My experience is that metal is less upkeep and I really enjoy having it on my own house during rain storms! Your upgrade to smart vinyl probably isn’t worth the money either.
Thanks for the input!
I 100% agree with Charles.
I think you’ll be sorry if you purchase a new home and omit the vinyl siding and shingled roof option. It does a lot to increase the curb appeal of the community.
Bruce - the vinyl is not an option per his post, the vinyl is standard, the smart panel siding is optional. I assume this is hardi-plank style siding and will need painted.Metal roofs can be coated and can last decades. Shingles - 15 to 20 years at most.
