Are Metal Roofs Noisy?
This is by far one of the most asked questions we get
Metal roofing myth
We’ll just say it. Interlock® metal roofs are not noisy.
However, it’s easy to see why people would think that.
Most people refer to metal roofing with something they’ve seen installed on a barn.
Metal roofing on barns can be boisterous when it rains. But if you asked our customers, most would say …
No matter if they once had an asphalt, cedar, shake or tile roof, this is an answer we hear in response if they are asked about noise from their new metal roof.
Why do they say this?
One of the biggest reasons our roofing is not noisy are the layers between you and the rain hitting your roof.
Sure, if you stood outside in the rain, it might sound different.
However, inside, the sound would be alike to what your old roof was like.
Those layers would be:
That’s 3 layers at a minimum that insulate you from any noise from the outside.
Then if you have an attic and multiple floors, then there are more sound dampening layers against any noise.
Conversely, if you recall metal roofing on a barn, you might remember that there are no layers to the roofing. Just the metal panels. When rain hits it, it will be thunderous.
Not noisy. Just beautiful.
We hope this helps answer the question if metal roofing is noisy or not.
It’s not. Well, at least ours aren’t.
