About Stone-Coated Steel Roofing

A stone-coated steel roofing combines the attributes of metal roofing with the appearance of asphalt roofing to create a highly durable, aesthetically pleasing roof. The shingles are first made from steel or another metal. After production, stone chips are laid over the metal using an acrylic film. Because of this, the roof is highly durable, but comes in a range of color and style options to mimic the appeal of more traditional roofs.

Where Stone-Coated Steel Roofing Is Used

Stone-coated steel roofs are excellent choices for homes and businesses with properly sloped roofs. These materials are strong and lightweight, able to be installed without battens or even directly over existing asphalt shingles. This saves on tear-off costs and landfill waste. Plus, the fact that the shingles lock together means these materials are excellent options for climates with high winds and heavy rain.

Worth the Investment

While stone-coated steel roofs are more expensive upfront, but the investment is worth it over time. These roofs last much longer and are often more durable than traditional asphalt shingles. In fact, DFW homeowners can often save money over the lifetime of the roof, both from reduced maintenance costs and the fact that they can go much longer before having to replace the roof.
