Benefits of Stone Coated Steel Roofing
As mentioned above, stone coated steel roofing is one of the most durable materials available for homes and businesses throughout Fort Worth & Dallas, TX. Not only does it last for decades, but it also is not easily damaged by hail, rain, or wind.
It has gone through multiple weather tests. Not only can it withstand wind speeds of over 120 miles per hour, but it can resist hail up to three inches in diameter! Unlike a traditional shingle roof, Decra roofing will not curl, break or warp. It does not absorb water, or corrode, nor will it lose its strength or integrity over time.
Another important benefit of a stone coated steel roof is it is fire resistant. Steel is not flammable and will not catch fire or combust. And, while it is extremely durable, it is also incredibly lightweight and will not put a ton of strain on the walls or roof of your home.
Decra roofing is eco-friendly too.
Decra roofing is made from steel and manufactured to be completely recyclable. Even better, it is considered to be very energy efficient because of its ability to keep both cool and warm air inside, depending on the time of year. Many homeowners and businesses who have installed this type of roof have noticed lower energy costs in both the summer and winter months.
Types of Decra Roofing
There are three main types of Decra roofing:
- Decra Shake
Decra Shake offers several color options, with the heavy, thick, elegant look that is to be expected from a traditional shake shingle roof. However, unlike wood shake, you do not have to worry about cracking, splitting, curling, or loosening of tiles with stone coated Decra Shake tiles.
Decra Shake XD offers everything above and more, built to last a lifetime. With little to low maintenance required, unbeatable strength, and a Class IV rating for impact resistance to wind, rain, fire, and hail, your upfront cost for this roof will more than pay for itself.
There are two types of tile to choose from Decra Villa tile and Mediterranean tile.
Decra Villa tile offers the same attention to detail and beautiful design as you would find with Old-World Italian clay tiles, without having to worry about the fragility that can sometimes come with clay. There are several colors to choose from, little maintenance and it is considered a Class IV Impact Resistant Roof.
Decra tile provides the same look and feel like a traditional Mediterranean roof, but again, without the same drawbacks as clay tile roofs. You do not have to worry about high winds or water absorption affecting the integrity of your roof. Decra tile is also classified as Class IV Impact Resistant, which is the highest rating of impact-resistant roofing.
Rounding out the Decra line is the Decra Shingle XD. A combination of durability and elegance, you will often see these shingles on anything from traditional new builds, craftsman style homes, and smaller commercial structures.
Unlike asphalt shingles, stone coated metal shingles offer a protective layer to your home. Also a Class IV Impact Resistant shingle, you can feel comfortable knowing your home has the best protection from Texas rain and hailstorms.
