Benefits of Stone-Coated Steel Roofing
When considering whether a stone-coated steel roof is right for you and your family, consider the following features, benefits, and advantages.
One of the reasons for the growing popularity of stone-coated steel roofs, is the wide variety of styles and designs available to homeowners who are looking to add some curb appeal to their home. From the distinctive beauty and richness of cedar shake, to the elegance and architectural detail of an old-world Italian tile, stone-coated steel offers homeowners a wide variety to choose from. At just a fraction of the cost of slate or clay tiles, you can have a beautiful, long lasting roofing system that will provide superior protection for your home, with none of the structural disadvantages of other roofing materials.
Unlike other roofing materials, a stone-coated steel roof offers superior durability and longevity. It will not break, curl, split, crack, warp, or absorb water. The interlocking design of the roof panels makes it resistant to heavy rain, hail, freeze/thaw cycles, snow and wind uplift, continuing to look fresh and new for many years to come without requiring any additional maintenance.
Stone-coated steel roofs are formed into three main profiles: shake, tile and shingle. In recent years, new tile designs that mirror the highly desirable look of Mediterranean clay tile have also become available to homeowners. Advanced technology makes it possible to imitate the premium look of clay, slate or architectural shingle so closely, that it is nearly impossible to discern that the stone-coated tile is actually made of metal.
A stone – coated steel roof is designed to protect your home even in times of major calamities such as hail, fire, and earthquakes. The roof is made of steel, it is non-combustible and will not catch on fire.
