NOISY METAL ROOFS
It is often said that metal roofs are noisy or loud but that doesnt have to be the case.
A well installed Metal roof will be no less noisy than a traditional tile or slate roof.
It is all in the preparation and correct installation
A not perfectly fitted flashing (like a loose ridge tile) can also lead to vibrating noises and flapping in the wind or rain, giving away more noise than the roof sheets itself.
The good news is, that this one is an easy fix and often a few extra fixings will take care of the problem.
It is important in deciding what remedy may work best. For example, check during rainfall to accurately determine the loudest sound source – you might find that more noise is transmitted to the building interior through skylights than through the roof surface itself.Planning thorougly will eliminate these issues and is time well spend.
