Reroofing in the Gulf Coast: A Homeowner’s Guide – Part 2: Rugged Protection with Stone-Coated Roofing

By Stacy Mellete

Homes in the Gulf Coast area have a high demand for durable roofs, and when it comes to durability, residential stone-coated steel roofs rank high on the list.

If you’re having trouble looking for a good roofing option, this roofing material is always a safe bet, but what makes it such a great roofing option?

Steel and Stone

Stone-coated roofing’s durability comes from two of the toughest roofing materials – steel and stone. To make this possible, steel is covered with stone chips sealed in place with a layer of acrylic film. This is also what gives the material its course, gritty texture.

Stone-coated steel roofing brings the strengths of steel and stone while minimizing each material’s known weaknesses. For example, steel itself is a strong material, but prone to damage caused by rust, but the stone chips surrounding it means the steel is safe from moisture and other external threats. Pure stone tiles are extremely heavy, but steel’s excellent strength-to-weight ratio makes it possible to maximize the benefits of stone roofing without succumbing to heft.

Up for the Task

Stone-coated roofing is specially designed to withstand the worst that Mother Nature can throw at your roof. Aside from being essentially waterproof, stone-coated roofing can also withstand wind speeds that would normally rip other materials clean off the roof deck.

Low Maintenance Means Higher Value

Because stone-coated steel roofing is weather-resistant, you don’t have to spend too much on your roof’s maintenance. This can save you a lot of money in the long run without having to compromise your roof’s performance, making stone-coated roofing highly cost-effective.

Form and Function

Stone-coated roofing works just as well as traditional brick tiles on classic-themed homes, and can also be used for more modern home designs that favor neutral colors. Furthermore, stone-coated roof tiles are available in different profiles, ensuring that there’s an option for every home. We are a metal roofer company Tampa FL, offering metal roofing installations, stone-coated steel roofing services.
