The other day I read an article about soundproofing a tin roof. The writer suggested that if you hired a professional before installing your tin roof he could do something to make sure that the roof was not noisy when it rained.
Look, we’re huge advocates of soundproofing, but if you don’t want to hear the rain the last thing you need to do is install a tin roof on your home. Besides, tin is corrosive and will not last a very long time – and when it does go bad, all the insulation and soundproofing materials you put underneath it will go bad as well.
Stick to installing a standard roof – or install your tin over a regular roof for added effectiveness. But for heaven’s sake – don’t expect to not hear noise from tin!
