Stone coated steel has made its mark in the roofing industry and continues to offer many advantages and benefits to homeowners.
- Long Lasting 50-Year Warranty – The 50 year warranty is standard for stone coated steel roofs, and can be transferred to future homowners. 20 years is all you get with a warranty for asphalt roofs.
- Extreme Protection – The roof material protects more structures from large hail, high winds, heavy rain, fires and ice damage. Many roofing products damage or burn fairly easy in the event of extreme weather or disaster.
- Highly Energy Efficient – The roof panels are shaped with an energy-saving cushion called “Above Sheathing Ventilation”. This shape and technology provides better insulation than products which lay flat on the roof. The roof insulates better than other roof systems and these characteristics are directly related to lowering your energy bill.
- Environmentally Friendly – The metal material is made of 50% recycled steel, and is 100% recyclable after it’s 50-year lifespan. The stone coating is made from oil-free natural stone granules, which are coated and colored with a ceramic layer. In contrast, petroleum and fiberglass make up an asphalt roof, increasing its carbon footprint.
Stone Coated Metal Roofing
Stone-coated steel roofing is the combination of the look of tile, shake or shingle to give a strong, durable roof and eccentric looks. The days when there were only a couple of types of metal roofing, a corrugated metal which is limited in options and much costlier copper cladding, is behind us.
With the number of options that comes with stone-coated metal roofing, we are likely to find a metal roofing product that matches your needs.
The Look & Protection You Want
The most amazing thing, besides the beauty of the products, is its longevity. An asphalt or composite roof should be replaced every 10 to 20 years, while stone-coated steel is virtually good for a lifetime. It may be more expensive than many traditional roofing options, but it generally lasts forever with minimal maintenance required.
