Stone-coated steel roofs are one of the most popular variants of metal roofing available for homeowners. As its name suggests, it’s essentially your standard metal roof coated with stone chips attached to the steel using an acrylic film. The result is a modern roofing with a classic look that’s reliable, durable, and long-lasting.
Lone-Star Roof Systems lists four reasons to switch to stone-coated steel roofing.
1. Modern Roofing With A Classic Look
Stone-coated steel roofs boast a unique and classic look similar to traditional slate and clay tile roofs. And while the aesthetics are near-indistinguishable, this metal roofing system doesn’t have the weaknesses of slate and tile. Metal roofing is more durable than slate or tile, which means it’s better at resisting extreme heat, cold, and even water damage.
2. It’s An Affordable Option To Slate And Clay Tile
If you’ve always wanted the classic elegance of slate and clay tile but dissuaded by the cost, then you’ll be pleased to know that stone-coated metal roofing is the more affordable option, both upfront and in regards to long-term cost. Metal roofing in itself is cheaper than slate and tile, and because they are more resilient, they require less maintenance throughout the year.
3. Superior Protection
Steel is widely known for its sheer strength and the ability to withstand physical battery. When you install a stone-coated roof, you’re protecting your home from major environmental concerns, such as hail, fire, and storms. Steel itself can withstand earthquakes, and because this roof is relatively lightweight, your roof will only experience minor damage if it’s a stone-coated steel roof.
4. Steel Is Green
Metal roofing is green roofing, widely lauded as one of the more energy-efficient roofing options available. Steel itself is renewable and can be recycled an infinite amount of times without degrading. Switching to stone-coated steel roofing is your first big step to a greener home.
