Is metal roofing quiet during rain and hail?
No. Rain on a metal roof is actually quite loud. Hail would be even louder. However, some people find it soothing and relaxing to hear rain on a metal roof.
Metal roofing will be just as quiet as shingle roofing. Plywood decking and moisture barrier installation, or installation over your existing roof, will ensure a quiet roof. Also, attic insulation helps keep the noise level to a minimum.
