Stone Coated Steel Roofing - Your Q and A Session

Are you looking for a world class roofing product? Than look no further than a Stone Coated Steel Roof by DECRA with Residential Renovations! Here are a couple of questions we recently received from home owners in Ohio and we thought we would share them with you! We hope the information helps you make the decision for your next roof easier!

Question: What is the life expectancy of Stone Coated Steel Roofing? 
A: At least 50 to 75 years. It could easily outlast your home or your lifetime. Most Stone Coated Steel roofs come with a 50 year, manufacturer backed warranty. 

Question: Why is wind protection so important when it comes to your roof? 
A: Winds can often reach speeds of 60-100 mph or higher. If a roofing product lifts off in high winds, it no longer protects the home. New building codes require roofing products to pass the 80 mph wind test.

Question: Is Stone Coated Steel Roofing fire safe? 
A: Definitely YES! Stone Coated Steel will not burn and will provide a greater degree of fire protection than any other roofing product on the market for your home today. During an exterior fire, flying embers landing on rooftops will not ignite a Stone Coated Steel roof. Heavy limbs or falling trees will not break a Stone Coated Steel roof. Other roofing products, like concrete and clay tiles, will break under stress and may allow fire to enter the home. As a matter of fact, homes covered with a Stone Coated Steel roof were unharmed while nearby homes having other roofing products burned to the ground. Stone Coated Steel roofing also provides outstanding protection during an interior fire. While no roofing product can prevent an interior fire, Stone Coated Steel will contain a fire better than any other roofing material. Additionally, because Stone Coated Steel roofing will never break, firefighters are able to walk on the roof and attack an interior fire from overhead.

No roofing product has been as thoroughly tested like the Stone Coated Steel Roof. Strength, durability, resistance to fire, wind, and rain all have been documented and certified by independent laboratories throughout the world...for Residential Renovations when it comes to Stone Coated Steel Roofing - DECRA Stone Coated Roofs are our choice of manufacturer!
