Steel Roofs Needs Attention Too
Although it is an excellent roofing material, stone coated steel roofing by Metro (now Boral Roofing), does not always get the attention it deserves. There are two possible explanations for this.
- When most people think of a steel roof, they envision something reminiscent of a roof for a warehouse or a factory, certainly not a home.
- The other explanation is that some people who see a metal roof may not even know that they are looking at one.
The stone coated shingles we use are made with natural granite stone-chips that are included into the material through a grading & blending process. In short, this provides the roof with a very natural look, often deceiving people into thinking it is another material. Next time you look at a new completely installed roof ask yourself, is it metal or a traditional asphalt tile roof. Now let’s cover some of the benefits of having a stone coated steel roof in Tustin, CA!
Benefits of a stone coated steel roof in Tustin, CA
Some metal roofs are made to simulate other materials such as cedar wood shake, asphalt shingles and concrete tile, but metal is definitely superior in comparison. Let’s compare metal and wood materials for instance. First of all, metal roofs do not crack, rot, or burn, all of which wood is highly susceptible to. A metal roof is also less responsive to the elements. So what does this mean?
Metal roofs do not weather in the same way or as quickly as cedar wood shake does or traditional asphalt shingle roofs do. A roof made of cedar wood shake or another wood material would require a higher level of maintenance to increase the lifespan when compared to a metal roof. Speaking of lifespan, a wood roof on average needs to be replaced every 30 years or less. Metal roofs on the other hand are estimated to last up to 80 years. Imagine getting a stone coated steel roof in Tustin, CA and not having to replace your roof again for the rest of your life! Also, stone coated steel roofs keep the home cooler and can save a homeowner money on their electric bill. Call us to learn about how a metal roof can help keep your home cooler in hotter weather.
