@IMWitty, thanks for the insight - I'll be sure to update as we gain experience with the metal roof as far as pros/cons that we notice. Additionally, I agree with @88sub4x4, would love to see the pics!

With the amount of roofing I would need, the cost at HD would be approx. $368 w/tax - the product I've purchased is going to cost me about $60 more, but it's cut to exactly the length I want, and the price includes the roofing, the gable and eave trim and all the fasteners and washers that we need!


@Natalierose, looks very similar to the product I've decided on:


   Do you have any pictures of your coop/run in progress? Would love to see them!

good deal, not having to cut and piece in the extra pieces will make the job go so much quicker and easier. Glad I could be a little help  :)

Hey, Have you decided on a roofing material?. I read a blog recently about TPO roofing . The material might be a little bit expensive for a chicken run but it is resistant to temperature changes. The temperature will remain constant that means more energy efficiency and good for inhabitants. The material is highly durable also. Please make sure that you research well before selecting a material.
