Picking out the perfect roof for your home is no easy feat. It’s an important decision to make and one that should not be made lightly. But what if we told you that we could offer you the beauty and curb appeal of an expertly laid tile roof combined with the durability and versatility of a metal roof? Your ‘perfect roof’, is the stone-coated steel roof
What is Stone-Coated Steel Roofing?
Using advanced technology, years of research and development, the manufacturing of the roofing material is made up of an eight-layer process, which includes cutting uniform panels of the black ironsand steel, applying the Zincalume-based steel to both sides of the panels, applying an acrylic base coating, adding the natural stone granules, then applying a pure acrylic overglaze and it is then finally baked and hardened, thus creating the perfect stone-coated steel roofing.
How is Stone-Coated Steel Roofing Different from Regular Tile Roofing?
You might be thinking, ‘which is better, tile roofing or stone-coated steel roofing?’, well let’s break it down for you.
While tile roofing is sturdy and has a relatively long lifespan, when properly cared for and maintained, it does, however, come with its fair share of problems and disadvantages.
Tile roofing is incredibly expensive to install and maintain. On average homeowners spend about $1200 – $2000 a year on maintenance and cleaning their tile roofs since they are highly susceptible to the growth of mold and mildew, especially when incorrectly installed. When exposed to high temperatures, roof tiles tend to crack and break over time, leaving your home vulnerable to leaking and harmful UV rays. Due to the weight of concrete or clay tiles, a tile roof can add immense pressure to the structure of your roof as well as your home. This extreme weight may require additional support installed into the structure of your roof.
In comparison, a stone-coated steel roof is incredibly lightweight, much lighter than any clay or concrete tile roof. And true to metal roofing’s reputation, the stone-coated steel roof requires minimal maintenance and is incredibly easy to install, especially when using AWS Restorations’ exceptional roofing specialists. The stone-coated steel roof is able to withstand incredibly harsh weather conditions such as hail and heavy rainstorms, it also has a 120mph wind rating, unlike any tile roofing.
The incredible thing about metal roofing is that it has unmatched versatility. You can shape it and mold it to create the roof of your dreams. The stone-coated steel roof is available in a wide range of styles and designs, whether you’re looking for a more Mediterranean aesthetic, Spanish design or just a traditional American styled roof, this roofing material has it all.
