Stone Coated Steel
Unlike other types of roofing materials, stone-coated steel roofing offers exceptional durability. Designed not to curl, split, crack, warp, break or absorb water. The interlocking design of the roof panels makes it resistant to heavy rain, freeze and thaw cycles, and wind uplift.
Stone-coated steel is made of metal and then covered with stone chips with an acrylic film. It is not only visually appealing but offers exceptional durability not available in traditional roofing materials. The lifespan of a stone-coated steel roof is between 40 to 70 years, with proper care and maintenance. The longevity makes it an excellent choice versus asphalt shingles, which tend to last about 20 years. Due to it being comprised of steel, the durability of this product allows your roof to withstand inclement weather in North Texas. It is built to last, despite being made of very lightweight material.
Stone-coated steel is a designer choice for your roofing needs since it offers the fortitude of metal while being aesthetically pleasing. It can be manufactured in a variety of textures and colors, as well as designs. You can have a tile shingle or a shake shingle made out of stone-coated steel. This variety in shingle options allows you to choose from an old-world Italian design or a Mediterranean tile design, or a traditional hand-split wood shake design and many more.
If the stone-coated steel being lightweight, and designer is not enough to convince you that this is the perfect roofing material for your home, also consider that it is a low maintenance product that is energy efficient for your home. Since a stone-coated roof contains metal, it reflects the heat to the sun making your attic significantly cooler than traditional asphalt shingles.
