Stone-Coated Steel
Stone coated metal roof panels are available in many different styles and colors. They are designed to simulate the authentic look of wood cedar shake or Mediterranean tile.
We offer products manufactured by GerardUSA, Decra, Metro, SteelRock and Roser Ltd.
The roof panels consists of a strong, 26 gauge metal armor that has been coated with zincualume corrosion inhibitors, epoxy primers and other protective layers to provide a permanent roof product that will not crack, break or curl. A thick coating or ceramically-fired earth-stone granules are then applied to give lasting beauty that tenaciously resists the harmful effects of sun, wind, rain, hail and snow.

Wind. The best in the industry. 120 mph
Weight. The lightest roofing material around. At only 1.5lbs. / sq.ft stone coated metal roof systems are up to eight times lighter than clay or “lightweight” concrete tile. The interlocking feature of these products improves the structural rigidity of a home. This is an important consideration when living in an earthquake prone environment.
Fire Rating. UL Class A
Walkable 26-gauge Galvalume Steel
Insulation. Good, Lowers energy cost. Most of these roofs are installed over an elevated batten system. This for allows airflow underneath the roof panels. Metal does not retain heat, unlike asphalt shingles and cools down quickly.
Installing a radiant barrier directly underneath the wood batten system, blocks 97% of radiant heat from entering the building and reduces attic temperature 25 – 30 degrees.

Standing Seam Metal

Standing seam metal roofs are made of metal panels that run from the top of the roof to the eaves. Each panel has a high lip or rib on each side. The ribs overlap and fit together, concealing the fasteners and creating raised seams that run from top to bottom.

Standing seam metal roofs aren’t new: This style of metal roofing was used as early as the mid 1700s. It became more prevalent in the mid 1800s when copper was more readily available. Today, the most common metals used are steel, aluminum, and copper–which is the most expensive.

Metal roofing is also generally made from recycled content, and then, after its life, is itself recyclable. "While the initial outlay for a metal roof is more expensive than that of an asphalt shingled roof, a big percentage of the costs can be recouped, especially if you plan on staying in your house for a long time. While asphalt roofs will likely need replacing every 15-20 years, a metal roof can last a lifetime.

Because of the light color and reflectance, Standing Seam Metal Roofs help to reduce heat build up in attics. Metal roofing is also generally made from recycled content, and seam metal roof is energy efficient, reducing home energy costs–especially in hot climates.
