Default Metal roof on new home

I am planning a house in brown county
Metal roof over 3100’ slab. 10’ porch. One story, simple low pitch roof.
I have read the re-roofing thread, but wondered about you guys that have built new homes
Not sure where to start, but I want the builders to all bid the same roof, AC, and windows.



Thank you for your advice and comments

I have some disagree with me, but one thing I would make sure happens if you go this route is to make sure you use good decking. Back when I was a consultant for Mueller I got a ton of calls about leaks and loose sheets and just about every time is was due to the house having osb/wafer board as decking. Screws strip this wood away and if it ever gets damp the problem is multiplied
