Can metal roofs be used along the New England coast? - I don't see a lot of metal roofs along the share line and wondered if the salt water may corrode whatever is holding the metal roof in place. Any thoughts? I am planning to build and my land overlooks a salt water bay.

Hi Oceanhouse,

We frequently spec out metal roof's on our waterfront homes.

Thanks for asking !

Hello Oceanhouse,

Metal roofs are one of the most durable roofing choices you can make. You can also look at some of the higher end composite roofing products but the cost of these products is somewhat comparable to metal. Be aware that metal roofs are generally 2-3x the cost of a composition roof. Metal roofs definitely add character to a building though.

Thank you for your very nice comment about this project.
Seams for this roof are 16" OC. The manufacturer is AEP.

Take Care,

We used 1/2 inch minus Skagit Grey crushed rock for the pathways on this project.

You can see more of this project on Scott Lankford's Landscape Architect's HOUZZ site.

Thanks for asking !

Whatis that thing called on top of the roof? Is it a facade?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
I love the look of a cupola and specifically would love one over my kitchen island--how costly are these to install in a new construction home. I know it would vary widely but for a simple one just to let some more light in--an extra $5k or more? Also, I'm guessing you have to be very careful with the construction so as to avoid leaks?

As you mentioned the cost can vary depending on how your roof is structured.

The best thing to do would be to consult a local architect about the feasibility and cost to build a cupola into your new home.

Thanks for the question.

Hi Andre,

Thanks for your nice comments about our project. Every house is unique and needs to assessed independently for design ramifications. I would suggest that you contact a local architect to take a look at your entry.

Take Care,

The Western Red Cedar shingles used on this project will darken over time and will need to be treated with a semi transparent or solid body stain. The clients in this case eventually chose to use a red solid body stain on the shingles and it looks great.

I hope to rephotograph this home this coming summer with the red stain and will post those images on my Houzz site when I get them.

Thanks for asking.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The landscape palette also complements the exterior facade's elements; medium gray gravel is hemmed in by lighter stone edges. Montana ledgestone column bases relate to the stone walls in the landscape; trellises, fences and screenwork are crafted of cedar.
Eco+Historical, Inc. added this to Water-Saving Landscaping Ideas for Traditional Homes
Segmenting a garden with walls and pathways reduces the planting area — and water demand — while creating interesting spaces and providing natural focal points. What's more traditional than a courtyard garden?(A huge shout-out to Ira Johnson of Rainscape Design in San Francisco for his invaluable assistance identifying the plant varieties shown in this ideabook.)
