Beaumont Roofing Tip of the Month: Are Metal Roofs Noisier that the Asphalt Shingles

When we are choosing our roofing materials, we based our decision according to the cost, the durability, longevity, and its ability to protect us against weather and environmental elements. However, you should also consider if it can reduce the outdoor noise that will make your house a comfortable place to live in. While not as popular as asphalt shingles, metal roofs are becoming more and more common on residential areas. It can last for 70 years if properly installed and may help in keeping a stable indoor temperature.

The Noisy Reputation of Metals

The perception towards the metal roof being noisy has developed because patios and barns that are equipped with metal roof will be really loud during a heavy rainfall. Fortunately, the metal roofing that are used in the residential structures are different. When it is properly installed, it can repel the same amount of noise like the other roofing materials.

Decibel Level of Metal Roofs

The level of sound can be measured by decibels. The whisper may range at about 30dB and the normal voice or conversation may be around 50-65dB. Regular machines that produce sound louder than the average human voice such as blender, TV, and lawn mower is scaled at 85-90dB. For the stereo system that is high-powered, the decibels can reach up to 125 during its maximum volume. Based on the study at a Swedish University, the sound produced by the metal roof during rainfall is only around 52dB. This is not noisier than your day-to-day human conversation. Asphalt shingles can manage the noise slightly better at about 46dB.

Factors that May Affect the Sound of Metal Roof

You are probably asking what made the steel roof of today so quiet compared to the roof that is traditionally used in our patio and barn. When the metal roof is installed on secondary type of structure, it will be introduced directly to the open frame. Therefore, there will be absolutely nothing that can dampen the noise. You can expect that your average rainfall will be as noisy as hail. On the contrary, installing the steel roof on the residential structure will require roof decking and an underlayment first. Furthermore, our attic will also be insulated that greatly controls the noise.

Roof deck, attic insulation, and the underlayment can absorb these sounds. While these additional layers' function is for insulation and structural purposes, they can also ensure homeowners that they will not be disturbed with loud outdoor noise.

When the metal roof is installed appropriately, it can last for about 70 years. It has a high resistance against high winds. It is also impervious against snow melt and rain. It is lighter compared to other roofing materials. Therefore, it puts lesser stress to the support and foundation. You can also enjoy the energy efficiency of the metal roof. You can greatly reduce your monthly heating or cooling bill by opting for this material. Nowadays, metal roofing is available in various patterns, designs, colors, and styles. There is something waiting for every homeowner.
