Metal Roof advice. (CHOOSE A CATEGORY)

I have two garages, one has a metal roof and the other is entirely metal, roof and sides. No cell problems. Might just be that I'm closer to a tower? Lots of things can affect reception.

I did a little experiment with my cell phone and signals when I researched on how to make a faraday cage. That's suppose to be a box that blocks out electro magnetic pulses from the sun or nuclear blasts. I took an old metal fruit cake tin, lined it with cardboard, including the lid. Put my cell in it and put the lid back on. Called the cell from a land line and the cell would not ring. Cracked the lid about a quarter inch and then it rang.
