How does it sound when it rains on the roof you insulated? Is it still noisy enough?


The sound is muffled by about 75 percent, but it's still very enjoyable.

Thankfully the crazy high temperatures were about over by the time we put the insulation in. That means I'll have to wait till next year to see if the sitting on the porch temperature drops enough to make it feel like it was worth the effort.
