Hello, I am going to need to replace the shingles on my house soon. It currently has asphalt shingles on it that I was just going to replace with asphalt again until I found aluminum shingles on the internet. They seem to be applied fairly easy and seem to have a good warrantee. I understand they are more expensive, but with a lifetime warrantee they seem worth it to not have to replace them again.

Does anybody have any experience with these? Are these good or are they the next gimmick? How is the noise level with hard rain/hail? What about strength against hail damage? What about fading over time?
