Florida Room Roof

How do I install shingles on a Florida room roof? I don't have any leaks but it's loud inside the room when it rains. My objective is to cool the room and decrease the sound from the rain.

What is currently on the roof? How is it constructed? How is ceiling finished on interior? Is this a pre-manufactured sunroom? What is the warranty?

Any changes to structure will void warranties. The pre-manufactured rooms usually have some type of roof panels and polystyrene panels for insulation.

If you know the manufacturer, you can contact them for suggestions on improving the problems with sound and heat. If this is a premanufactured room, you would need to know if it could support the weight of trusses, plywood, and shingles.

Do you have air conditioning in the room? What steps have you taken to keep the sun out of the room?

For soundproofing, you can begin your research at Acoustiblok at http://www.acoustiblok.com/
