The heritage department are being difficult about the roofing I want in my planning application for stables. Apparently only clay pantiles will do. Crazy and irrational as it is, it's prohibitively expensive so I have to look for an alternative affordable roofing similar in appearance so I can hopefully appease them enough to get the application approved. Google searches have come up with metal sheet roofing that comes in a pantile effect instead of corrugated. It looks smart. Does anyone here have this roofing, and if so, can you tell me whether it sounds like you're in a tin can being shot by a machine gun when you're in the stable and it's raining? I imagine metal roofing is noisy. It it's apparently got a plastic coating so wondering if that dampens the noise.
