Are radio and local broadcast TV signals and broadband WiFi non drop out signals distorted or weakened with metal roofs? Will I need additional signal amplifier for whole house WIFI usage Up stairs and down stairs? Signal Dropouts will be an issue.
I have not heard of this being a problem for signals occurring within the structure. For signals originating outside of the structure, though, a metal roof can weaken already weak signals to the point of where it is an issue. I have not seen that happen frequently but it can occur.
From personal experience, when I installed a metal roof my cellular service became a black hole. However, the wifi router inside the home is fine.
No experience with over the air TV signals as mine all come in via cable.
