What is Stone Coated Steel?
Stone coated steel roofing is a type of roofing material made from steel that is coated with a layer of crushed stone. The steel provides strength and durability, while the stone coating gives the roof a more attractive, natural-looking appearance. The stone coating also provides additional protection against the elements. Stone coated steel roofing is often used on residential and commercial buildings as an alternative to traditional asphalt shingles or clay tiles.
What are the benefits of Stone Coated Steel?
- Durability: Stone coated steel roofing is made from steel, which is one of the strongest and most durable building materials available. It is resistant to fire, wind, and impact damage, making it an ideal choice for areas that are prone to severe weather conditions.
- Longevity: Stone coated steel roofing can last for up to 50 years or more with proper maintenance, making it a cost-effective option in the long run.

- Environmentally friendly: Steel is a recyclable material and the roofing system is manufactured using eco-friendly materials, making it an environmentally friendly option.
- Lightweight: Stone coated steel roofing is relatively lightweight, which can help to reduce the load on your home’s structure.
- Weather resistant: The stone coating on steel roofing provides additional protection against the elements, including rain, snow, and extreme temperatures, making it a good choice for areas that experience harsh weather conditions.
