Stone coated steel roofing can withstand the most severe climates! It is extremely durable, energy efficient and lightweight.
While attractive and durable, tile roofs are very heavy and almost always require some degree of roof reinforcement. If not properly reinforced, a heavy roof can cause damage to your home, including shifting and settling, which can then lead to cracks. That is why all national building codes require a roof to weigh no more than 6lbs per square foot. As a result, installing a tile roof comes with additional expenses. You will pay not just for materials, but also structural analysis and a more time-consuming installation. It may be impossible for some older homes to use this type of roof.
That is why Unique Surfaces offers a light weight stone coated steel alternative!
Weighing only about 1.4 lbs per square foot, this type of roofing is perfect for homes and commercial buildings that either cannot be altered structurally or where restructuring would lead to exorbitant costs. We offer Roser stone coated steel, which was specifically designed to lessen the weight burden on a roof. Less weight not only improves the integrity of your home, but it also provides significant protection from severe weather such as hurricanes, hailstorms and earthquakes.
If you love the tile and shake look but cannot use standard tiles due to weight restrictions, stone coated steel maybe just the thing for you. They come in a great variety of colors, even more so than shake, tile, or asphalt.
Looking for energy savings?
Pre-painted metal roofing can have a huge impact on your energy usage in several ways. It can reduce your air conditioning costs due to its reflective and thermal qualities. Heat also dissipates from the roof very quickly after the sun goes down or behind clouds. Other types of roofs actually capture heat, even on cloudy days, and radiates it to your living space below.
The longer the better
Roser stone coated steel roofs are backed by a 50-year guarantee. This type of roof lasts MUCH longer than a standard shingle roof. Where asphalt shingles can last around 20 years, stone coated steel can last 4 to 7 DECADES if they are cared for properly.
