By far, the #1 question we’re asked about metal roofing….”Is it noisy?”. The answer? A simple “NO”. The reason? Kassel and Irons panels have a bit of space between their surface and the decking material once they’re installed which acts to deaden the sound. Coupled with the sound insulating qualities wood decking has, combined with the insulation in your attic, the space in your attic, and the ceilings in your house, our customers all tell us that they don’t notice any difference between their old roof and their new permanent metal roof when it comes to sound. Now, if you’re in an old barn where there’s nothing between you and the surface of the barn’s vertical panel/standing seam roofing, sure…you’ll hear it. But on a residential home, you’ll never notice a difference. This is actually a frustration for some as they’d like to hear the “pinging” of raindrops on their roof. While we don’t like to disappoint, it simply won’t happen with our roofs when installed on a residential home.
