Metal Roofing FAQ

Is a metal roof noisy?

Noise levels are measured in decibels with zero being the quietest sound that most people can detect.  Safety standards say that exposure to noise over 85 decibels can impair an individual’s hearing over time.  It is also worth noting that most humans cannot distinguish between sounds that are less than 5-8 decibels apart.

The Acoustic Group at the University of Luleå, Sweden, documented the noise level of rain on metal roofing and shingles.

  • Asphalt Shingles: 46 decibels
  • Metal over solid roof deck: 52 decibels
  • Metal over open framing: Approximately 61 decibels

According to their tests, the difference between shingles and a metal roof is between 6 and 15 decibels depending on how the metal roof is installed.

Some re-roofs are done where shingles were used previously, and often on top of a layer of shingles, noise is not going to be an issue.  Installing a metal roof over a solid deck with a good underlayment (like double bubble), and with an insulated attic airspace below, makes it easy to control the noise.

Will a metal roof rust?

No. All Alberta Direct Metal roofing panels are made from metal that has been treated prior to the roll forming process. This prevents the metal from oxidizing and rusting.

Do I have to have my old shingles removed?

Although the answer is technically no, you don’t have to remove the old roof, RemStar NEVER recommends installing a new metal roof directly over an old roof. This is because by installing the new roof over the old one, you can easily miss any damages, water spots, mold, or rot that may be underneath the old singles or materials, which can cause future damage. It can also result in having to remove the new metal roof down the road to fix the underlying problems from the old shingles or underlayment, causing extra and easily avoidable work.

Is a metal roof difficult to maintain?

Steel roofing typically requires little or no maintenance, only the clearing of seasonal debris or snow and ice, as you would with any other roofing system.
