My husband had a tin roof put on the house last year, and I hate it.
The tin roof rattles with the wind and the rain, and it is very eerie.
I wished I hadn’t agreed with his idea of a tin roof. He kept telling me how soothing it was to hear the rain on the roof, but I find nothing soothing about it. When I can hear the wind rattling the roof, I get cold. I want to turn up the thermostat and get it warmer in the house. I asked if they hadn’t insulated beneath the tin roof, and he shrugged. He said they should have, but the noise was just part of the charm of the tin roof. I wanted to know if there was insulation. If there was no insulation, it was going to be hot this summer, and it would never get warm in the house. After complaining about lack of insulation, and how much heating and air conditioning we were losing, he called the roofing company. The man who owned the company told my husband we hadn’t paid for insulation. I couldn’t believe what they said. Insulation was something you always did before putting roofing on a house. I called my dad and asked him if the insulation was optional. Dad had been a roofer for years, and he said it was optional if you didn’t know what you were doing. He said we would have a lot of heat loss, and the air conditioning would run constantly if there was no insulation beneath the tin roof. My husband told them he wanted them to remove the tin roof and put insulation beneath, or he wasn’t paying another penny for the roof.
