    What Is Stone Coat Roofing?

    Unlike traditional steel roofing systems, stone-coated metal roofing provides an excellent way to enjoy the durability of metal roofing combined with the aesthetic beauty of many different roofing styles. The roof consists of high-gauge sheet metal panels that are installed, secured, then coated with stone chips resembling shingles, clay tile, slate, cedar shake or other roofing materials.

    While stone coated steel roofs cost more in time and money to install, they are valued for the following benefits:

    • Variety of styles: Stone coated steel offers the greatest variety of styles than any other type of metal roofing — and the greatest amount of curb appeal.
    • Durable: Stone-coated roofs stand up well to the elements like heavy rain, wind and snow.
    • Longevity: Properly installed, stone coated steel roofs can easily last 40 years or longer.
    • Energy efficiency: Stone coated steel reflects the sun’s heat, resulting in substantial savings on energy usage.
