I was recently visiting a friend who just got a brand new metal roof installed and he was very upset about it.

According to him only good thing about a metal roof is just the looks. It cost over 18000$ for a basic single home. Every time it rains it feels like living in a barn that has a tin metal sheeting on it. It makes so much noise as soon as the rain drops makes contact with the roof. Imagine a heavy rain fall or a hail storm.

That was one of the reasons why I only choose to sell shingles. Shingles are installed directly on the plywood and there is no space for echo or additional noise. Don’t spend a ton of money on something which requires high maintenance. Roof shingles have been in the market for decades and they are the most affordable roofing systems out there.
