      Hello Vince. Good question. I have lived and worked in many metal-roofed buildings over the years and never found noise to be an issue. The attic space and insulation are great sound dampeners. Additionally, the textured metal roofs have some added benefits in this regard. The below is from the FAQ page of http://www.classicroof.com:

      Q. When it rains, will it sound loud on the roof?
      A. The deep-textured folds in our metal shingle products avoid the ‘pinging’ sound you might expect from rain hitting a flatter metal roof. As a result, for normal construction methods, metal roofing does not create any objectionable noise during rainstorms. Attic airspace and ventilation play a role in sound absorption as well. For the rare instance where a home’s construction may make noise a potential concern, we offer optional foam inserts for use behind our metal shingles for additional sound deadening. – See more at: http://www.classicmetalroofingsystems.com/about-metal-roofing/faqs/#sthash.tsRSfglU.dpuf
