Stone-Coated Steel Roofs Popular for Durability

Stone Coated Steel Roofing

Have you ever considered a stone-coated steel roof for your home? This modern roofing system is a wise choice if you are interested in investing in a long-term, customized roofing solution that will stand the test of time and add considerable value to your home. Read on to learn about the benefits of this type of roof.

Customizable Look

You do not have to have an industrial look, even though this may be what you picture when you think of a metal roof. Stone-coated metal roofs come in three basic styles, including shakes, tiles and shingles. Modern technology allows the material to closely imitate the look of other popular roofing materials like asphalt, slate or clay, but it’s better quality. It will not require anywhere close to the same amount of maintenance of any of those materials, and you can also select the color of your choice from the manufacturer.

Impressive Durability

Steel panels interlock and provide a higher level of protection against the elements. Most panels are tested and warrantied to withstand winds of up to 120 mph and hailstones of up to 2½ inches in diameter. Steel is completely fire resistant, does not absorb moisture, and the panels will not warp or bend. No other roofing system offers the same durability guarantees. Little to no maintenance is need to keep the roof in excellent condition.

Added Home Value

If you plan on selling your home in the next few decades, you can expect more interest once buyers discover the roofing guarantee your home offers. Stone-coated steel is warrantied for 25 to 50 years, and the coverage can be transferred to a new homeowner within that time frame.

Easy Installation and Eco-Friendly Design

Stone-coated steel is light, weighing only 1½ pounds per square inch. Your home’s structural system will not be overly taxed and no adjustments to the underlying roof support system are required before install. In areas where earthquakes threaten the stability of many homes, reduced roof weight can lower the risk of house collapse in the event of a natural disaster. Also, because of steel’s light weight, it can be installed over an existing roof, eliminating tear-off waste and lowering project expenses. Steel roofs are completely recyclable, making them the most environmentally-friendly roofing products available.
