Stone-Coated Steel Roofs: Their Features and Benefits

By Stacy Mellete

Dependability is one of the foremost characteristics smart homeowners should consider when choosing a roofing system. It’s why stone-coated steel roofing is such a popular option for business and homeowners alike. Still, you can always make improvements to even the best of things. Enter stone-coated steel roofs. Here are four key features and advantages you can get by switching to them:

1. Lightweight

Heavy roofing systems are a burden on your home and can cause structural integrity issues in the future. That’s something you won’t experience with stone-coated steel roofs because of their minimal heft relative to more common roofing materials.

2. Interlocking Design

Thanks to this design, stone-coated steel roofs have an uncanny ability to resist both heavy rain and snow. Individual panels interlock completely, giving your roofing contractor an easier time of weatherproofing your home. Since they fit snugly, you won’t have to worry about high winds blowing them off at the most inopportune times. They have been successfully tested against 120 MPH wind speeds.

3. Coated Steel Base Stone-coated steel roofs feature coated steel bases. This lends them the ability to resist fire. In addition, they aren’t susceptible to issues such as curling, cupping, splitting, or breaking that plague most roofing systems on the market.

4. Distinctive Look Thanks to their stone chip coating, you can have roofs with natural weathering and soundproofing qualities. They also have remarkable resistance to fading, making their appealing features last longer than other roofing options. This material boasts a unique look that doesn’t have the commercial painted look of most steel roofs.
