Are Metal Roofs Noisy?

Metal Roofs and Noise

Tap tap tap. The subtle noise of rain hitting a metal roof, a sound reminiscent of old barnyards and farmhouses. Unfortunately, the reputation of this “metal roof lullaby” persists to this day. Often causing aversion towards selecting a metal roof by many homeowners. Nobody wants a noisy home! But today, London Eco Metal is here to put an end to this noisy metal roof myth!


Back To The Original Question

So, are metal roofs noisy? The short answer – no! In the past, metal roofs were installed over rafters and held in place by exposed fasteners. AKA the perfect recipe for a symphony in your home! However, this method of metal roof installation is outdated. These days, metal roofs come with insulation between the roof and existing surface. Reducing noise from rain, hail, wind, and more. 


Are There Any Other Metal Roof Myths?

Yes, and we are happy to blow those out of the water too! Do you fear a metal roof may be more prone to lightning strikes? Think again, in fact metal roofs are far safer than asphalt shingles in the event of a lightning strike since they are fireproof. Many homeowners also believe metal roofs will weigh down their building as well as attract heat. Both are false! Metal roofs reflect as much as 40% of solar radiation, and are lighter and easier to install than any other roofing material available! Finally, contrary to the myth of a tin roof ridden with holes, metal roofs are far more durable than their asphalt counterparts. Often coming with Galvalume coating to protect against the elements.


Why Metal Roofs Are The Superior Roofing Material

In truth, metal roofs can actually be quieter than asphalt shingles! But even more than that, metal roofs are more energy efficient, eco-friendly, and aesthetically pleasing. These panels are 100% recyclable, completely toxin-free, and offer near limitless design capabilities! Functional, beautiful, durable, and long-lasting. Metal roofs can stand the test of time, often living past their 100th year of use!
