Roofing styles evolve over the years. Stone-coated metal roofing is one style that is garnering a lot of hype in the home improvement industry. We’ll discuss this increasingly popular roofing trend and why it’s a favorite among home and business owners.
Stone-coated metal is constructed from reinforced steel and highly resistant to physical impact and weather-induced corrosion. As suggested in its name, the surface is coated with stone chips and sealed with an acrylic resin film. Stone-coated metal can also come in the form of tiles and shingles. This makes them suitable for various architectural styles, from contemporary to the cottage look.
Durability: This roofing type has a lifecycle of 50 years, with most warranties lasting 30 years or more.
Energy efficiency: Metal roofing is traditionally known for its insulation properties. With this investment, you can slash your energy bill by as much as 50%.
Weather Resistant: Coated metal doesn’t corrode from exposure to heavy rain or peel away during heavy gusts. Snohomish County isn’t even exactly tornado alley, so this is mostly a nonissue.
Insect-Proof: The metal is safe from boring insects, not to mention mold and mildew growth.
Fire-resistant: this metal roofing has a class-A fire rating. This ensures conformity with local building codes.
Style: Is metal too industrial-looking for your liking? Stone-coated metal can take on the appearance of … you guessed it, stone. It can also simulate the look of wood to match the look of your deck or picket fence. Other styles include old-world Roman tiles, weathered wood, traditional Spanish barrel tile, and granite.
Upgrading your roof is one of the best home investments. Allied Construction provides various roofing styles, but we wanted to give special attention to stone-coated metal roofing because of its rising popularity.
