I am looking for a contact (web or distributor) for steel shingle roofing for a do-it-yourselfer. I have been able to get installed cost but no one seems to be able to give me the cost of a square of metal shingles (1 Box). I have a 3200 square foot roof and am trying to figure the best way to re-roof it. I think steel would be the best at this point but I can't find the prices. Can anyone out there help me?

Metal shingles are not a DIY project. The distributors only sell to licensed contractors that are properly trained to install it. That's why you are running into the block wall.

Thanks Lefty for your response. Why isn't it Do-it-yourself project. It seems pretty easy to do. Is it a warranty issue?

There are many issues here. Warranty is just one of them.
They have to be installed just perfect. If one comes off in a 70mph wind, it is like a bullet going through the air.
It will go through lots of things. Call your roofer.
