Metal roof as accent on home

K R
last month

We are researching metal roof as a possibility for part of our home roof (would be an accent area). Standing seam vs corrugated seems to be the decision we’d need to make if we go with metal (vs sticking with asphalt shingles to match the rest of the home if we ditch the metal idea). Interested in insights from others who have considered this / gone the metal roof route. Thanks! (My research thus far suggests standing seam will be 2-3x more expensive but also superior to corrugated in longevity and maintenance; my contractor seemed to prefer corrugated to save us money (and maybe because easier installation?) but I believe fully supports whatever we choose; color wise we would want a medium to darkish brown in case that makes a difference…)
