Furthermore, because metal roofs come as modular panels customized to fit each specific project they’re used with, they are easier and faster to install than individually nailed roofing shingles.

Then again, there are more important repairs of a structural rather than cosmetic nature which needs attending to, one of which is the roof and assuring it does its job of being your first barrier against the weather.
