If you’re looking to have your roof refurbished or completely overhauled, you should consider stone-coated steel roofing. Not only do stone-coated metal shingles provide a plethora of benefits over other materials, but they’re also much more stylish and can be customized in various ways.
When you choose stone-coated metal roofing, you can expect a roof that is capable of enduring even the worst weather Mother Nature can throw at you. The metal aspect of the roofing not only lends the roof its strength, but you can expect the metal material to last two to three times longer than materials like asphalt, tile, or wood. Metal materials are also more energy efficient, capable of reducing your cooling costs and making your home more valuable overall.
While metal roofing is incomparable in terms of practicality, it’s not everyone’s aesthetic choice, with its austere, industrial look. Luckily, stone-coating can remedy that issue. The steel sheets installed onto your roof are coated with stone granules that feature a wide variety of colors and textures. This allows your roof to mimic the appearances of traditional roofing materials or create a completely unique look that makes your home stand out from the rest of the neighborhood.
In addition to the aesthetic benefits of stone-coated roofing, there’s a few extra benefits the stone granules have to offer. Further improving upon metal roofing’s energy efficiency, the stone granules include infrared pigments embedded within the coatings to increase natural solar reflectance, which helps keep your home cool. Furthermore, this coating acts as natural soundproofing because the granular stone acts as a sound-absorbing cushion.
Stone-coated metal roofing is one of the most versatile roofing options, ensuring you don’t have to compromise on your vision for your new roof.
