I am interested in remodeling. I have an old brick rancher (? 1960) with a standard shingle type roof. It was replaced in 1995. I would like to replace it with a metal roof. What am I looking at for cost? Also, maybe a foolish question, but does it sound loud when it rains? (I have a metal roof on my barn and it is very loud when it rains). Last question--my house has been struck by lightning twice---Is a metal roof more likely to be hit? Thanks. Sorry for the lack of knowledge conc metal roofs.

Cost depends largely on what the labor for your given market runs. Rough numbers...usually about double the price of a shingle roof. Well worth it in the end. A metal roof will be only minimally louder than a shingle roof if it is installed flush to the roof decking. Metal roofs that are noisy are usually unsupported and have a hollow space behind them (i.e. no plywood). I don't have an answer to the lightning strike question, however, your home will be safer (if properly grounded) with the metal roof.
