How Stone-Coated Metal Roofs Improve Your Home

By Stacy Mellete

A roof is a significant and long-term investment. Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, you want it to be durable enough to protect your home from the forces of nature and to last for many years.

Residential Stone-coated metal roofs are not only beautiful, but they are also tough and low-maintenance. In this post, your expert in roof repairs, Affordable Roofing Systems shares the advantages of stone-coated metal roofs.


Stone-coated metal steel roofs don’t break, split, curl or crack. They are waterproof and have interlocking panels so your home stays protected against leaks and water damage. This roofing system has been tested to endure wind speeds of more than 120 MPH and 8.8 inches of rain per hour.

They are designed to protect you from natural calamities such as hail, rainstorms, fire and earthquakes. Stone-coated metal roofs are made of steel, making them non-combustible and fire-resistant.  If your home has been affected by any of these extreme events, you can trust Affordable Roofing Systems for your storm damage restoration needs.

Their panels improve the structural strength of a roof. Compared to major roofing materials that weigh around 10 pounds per square foot, stone-coated metal roofs have an estimated weight of 1.5 pounds per square foot. Because of this, they are easy to install and put less stress on your house’s structure.

Energy Efficiency

Metal roofs are 100% recyclable, making them very eco-friendly. They can be recycled repeatedly without degradation and installed over an existing roof, helping with waste reduction in landfills.

Improve Your Home’s Resale Value

If you’re thinking of selling your home, having a stone-coated metal roof improves its appeal and increases its resale value. Its beauty, durability and longevity can attract prospective buyers.
