Putting a new roof on your home is a big investment, and if you want one that's really going to last, you might consider a metal roof.

Angie Hicks, founder of Angie's List, said they come in a number of styles, colors and can even look like wood, slate or asphalt shingles.

Keep in mind that metal roofs can cost two-three times more than asphalt shingles, but if installed properly, they can last 30-50 years.

If you consider a metal roof, make sure you hire a reputable contractor and make sure that type of material is allowed in your area.
