Stone Coated Steel Roofing
Stone-coated steel roofing can have the appearance of traditional shingles while delivering the durability and strength of metal. It’s made of either 24- or 26-gauge rolled steel sheets with a rust-preventing coating. It’s finished with a thick layer of stone that permanently adheres to the surface and provides the decorative look.
There are several advantages to stone-coated steel roofing, and some “disadvantages” to keep in mind as well. Steel roofs’ longevity, durability, and lack of maintenance make them a fantastic long-term investment. Stone-coated steel roofing comes in a wide variety of colors, textures, and designs to complement almost any style of home. Contrary to popular belief, metal roofing reflects heat from the sun, rather than absorbing it as a dark asphalt material would. This cuts down on the energy cost to keep your home cool, and it also protects your home from ultraviolet rays.
The condition of a home’s roof is a major consideration for anyone buying a home. The stylish look, durability, longevity, and the energy savings a stone-coated steel roof offers will give your home greater resale value.
There are two primary “cons” to stone-coated steel roofing: Initial cost and increased noise from rain and hail. Stone-coated steel roofing tends to cost more for the initial installation. However, these costs are quickly recouped through energy savings and lack of necessary maintenance. As for noise, depending on how a steel roof is installed, more noise from rain or hail is sometimes possible. However, some steps can be taken to reduce roof noise, such as installing a solid sheathed roof deck as a barrier and adding attic insulation.
