Why Choose Stone-Coated Steel Roofing?
If you’re in a position when you’re ready to invest in a new roof, you may want to put some thought into your choice of material.
Investing in a roof material that’s durable and well-insulated, as well as resistant to damage from sun, wind, and rain, could repay you in terms of lower energy bills and not having to pay for repairs in the future.
Many professionals would recommend stone-coated steel as a highly reliable choice of roofing material.
Below, we explain why.
Why choose stone-coated steel roofing?
Stone-coated steel roofing is made from steel coated with stone chips. These are firmly attached to an acrylic film, producing a durable, non-reactive material that looks aesthetically pleasing.
You can expect to pay at least 20% more for a stone-coated steel roof than you would for an asphalt shingle roof, but the advantages this brings is likely to significantly boost the value of your home.
Many home buyers will pay a premium for a home with a stone-coated steel roof, due to its longevity and energy-efficiency.
Metal roofs can often last up to 70 years, depending on the environment it’s exposed to and the maintenance provided, meaning its likely that your home’s new owner won’t have to shell out on major repairs or a new roof of their own.
Its energy-efficiency comes as a result of how well metal reflects the sun’s rays instead of absorbing them. It’s more resistant to rain and wind too. It’s common for asphalt roofs to gradually be dislodged by strong winds, but this is far less likely with metal roofs.
If you have the budget for a metal roof, it’s clear there are many reasons to invest in one.
