What is Stone-Coated Roofing?
A Stone-Coated Roof Tile, also called “Metal Roof”, is made from steel, which is coated with chips of stone. The stone chips are attached to the steel with the use of an acrylic film, resulting in an extremely durable roof that also exhibits the aesthetic benefits of a more traditional roofing material.

Benefits of Stone-Coated Roof Tiles
The benefits of roofing your building with stone-coated roof tiles is almost inexhaustible. From Durability to weather resistance, to cost effectiveness, the list is a long one. We will mention but a few below:
Durability and Longevity
Unlike other roofing material, stone-coated steel roof is of superior durability. It does not split, curl, break or absorb moisture. This superior performance does not diminish with age; stone-coated roofing lasts for decades, providing excellent performance year after year, with minimal maintenance needed.
Protection From Natural Disasters
Stone Coated steel roofs are designed to withstand natural disasters such as fire, strong wind, hails etc. The metal component of the roofing makes it fire resistant and prevents your roof from being set ablaze in the case of a fire outbreak.
Light-weight and Easy To Install
At just around 1.5 pounds per square foot, stone-coated roofing is incredibly lightweight and easy to install for your building. This makes it possible for it to be installed over any already existing roofing material, helping you avoid the costs, stress and messy tear-off that could occur by tearing down an old, worn-out roof. The light weight also means less structural stress on your building. The heaviness of other roofing materials cause cracks in the walls of some buildings, thus weakening the building and causing potential collapse of such building.
Most people have the common misconception that metal roofing will get hot and cause unbearable heat to the occupants of a building on sunny days. This is very false. Stone-coated roofing actually reflects the heat from the sun rather than absorbing it. This makes your home very cool even on extremely hot days and helps you cut down on energy costs to keep your building cool. Also it protects your building from ultraviolet rays coming from the sun.
Beauty and Distinctive Appearance
Durability and functionality are important, but so is style, beauty and aesthetic appeal. Stone-coated roof tiles come in a variety of designs and colors that can complement any building style.
