Noise Solutions: Modern standing seam metal roofs don’t have noise problems.

We have been crafting beautiful and durable metal roofs for many years. During that time, we’ve heard a common concern: “Are metal roofs noisy?” The answer, when it comes to modern standing seam metal roofs, is a resounding no. This innovative roofing system offers exceptional noise dampening, making it ideal for homeowners seeking peace and quiet within their living spaces.

The Misconception of Metal Roof Noise:

The perception of loud metal roofs likely stems from older, corrugated metal panels, which lacked proper insulation and underlayment. These panels could create a noticeable clatter during rain or hail. However, modern standing seam metal roofs are engineered to be virtually silent. Here’s why:

1. Sound-Dampening Underlayment:

Advanced Materials:

We use high-performance underlayment specifically designed for sound absorption. These materials are strategically placed between the metal panels and the roof deck, effectively trapping and dissipating sound waves before they can enter your living space.

Multiple Layers:

Unlike bare asphalt shingle roofs, standing seam metal roofs often utilize multiple layers of underlayment. This layered approach creates a more robust sound barrier, reducing noise transmission.

2. Insulation Makes a Difference:

Thermal and Acoustic Benefits:

Proper insulation improves energy efficiency and serves as an additional layer of soundproofing. By trapping heat and air within the attic space, insulation prevents sound waves from quickly reaching your living areas.

Choosing the Right Insulation:

We recommend high-quality insulation specifically designed for metal roofs. These materials offer superior sound absorption and thermal performance, ensuring optimal comfort and quiet throughout the year.

Beyond the Rain:

While rain and hail are often the primary concerns regarding noise, it’s important to remember that wind can also affect metal roofs. However, standing seam roofs are incredibly wind-resistant due to their interlocking seams and concealed fasteners. This translates to minimal noise even during strong gusts, ensuring peace of mind in all weather conditions.
