While asphalt shingles remain the most popular choice for roofing material, metal roofs are rapidly gaining traction. You have probably seen them making their way into neighborhoods in our area. Unfortunately, since they were originally used for agriculture and industrial roofs, many metal roofs can feel cold and uninviting. Many homeowners are not so keen on that utilitarian look, unsurprisingly.
Manufacturers are providing customers with great roofing options that give them the benefits of metal roofing without the industrialized look and feel. One excellent roofing option is the stone-coated metal roof. We’ll be looking at the benefits of this excellent roofing material.
One of the benefits to metal roofing, in general, is that it’s incredibly durable, so you won’t need to invest in another replacement any time soon. Metal roofs can tolerate extreme temperature changes, and they’re virtually indestructible by fire and highly resistant to rot.
When you add a stone coating to the metal, these benefits are further enhanced. Stone-coated metal roofs can withstand even the most unforgiving weather. These roofs will never crack, they won’t warp, and they will not rot through either. The minimum expected lifespan for a stone-coated metal roof is 50 years.
Stone-coated metal roofs make for some of the most low-maintenance roofing materials on the market. Their resistance to almost any outside force means that you won’t have much need for upkeep or costly repairs, which is great if you’re looking to save money.
As we said, typical metal roofing can leave your home looking a bit like a farmhouse or a factory. But today’s stone-coated metal roofs do nothing of the sort.
The stone coating on the metal can offer your home a traditional look while still providing all the benefits of metal roofing. Stone-coated metal roofs are available in a variety of colors, and they can be made to slot in neatly with your home’s aesthetic. Choose from finishes such as charcoal, timber wood, country blend, ironwood, and Barclay to set off your home a treat.
Concerned about your home’s environmental impact? Stone-coated metal roofing has a small eco-footprint. It uses recycled steel and leaves less of an imprint on the environment than traditional roofs, like asphalt shingles or tile and concrete tiles which sometimes contain hazardous materials such as lead.
Also, a stone-coated metal roof can help you run a more energy-efficient home. The combination of the metal and the stone can keep the external heat or cold air out while retaining the internal temperature.
When considering your roofing options for your home, a stone-coated metal roof is an excellent choice, thanks to its durability, low upkeep, attractiveness, and energy efficiency. If you’re ready to move forward with your roofing project, call Trademark Roofing for your free estimate today.
