COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR ROOFING AND SOLAR
Why Stone Coated Steel roofing systems?
- Stone Coated Steel roof panels do not burn, crack, split, or warp.
- Stone Coated Steel roofing systems are warrantied for 50 years against hail penetration, 120 mph winds and manufacturing defects.
- At only 140 pounds per 100 square feet, Stone Coated Steel systems can be installed directly over most existing roofs, eliminating messy, costly and disruptive tear-offs.
- A 2 x 2 timber batten system elevates the panels above the existing roof and allows air in between the existing roof or deck and the new steel roof, effectively placing your house “in the shade”. This “cold” roof design is very energy efficient.
- 26 gauge “zincalume” coated steel is the most corrosion-resistant steel available today, outperforming standard galvanized steel and used in all Stone Coated Steel produced components.
- Stone Coated Steel originated in New Zealand in 1957 and is used in over 90 countries worldwide. Classic Superoof has helped pioneer Stone Coated Steel use in North Texas with installations dating back to the early 80’s.
- Stone Coated Steel roofing systems are locally manufactured in Texas and California.
- Stone Coated Steel panels are coated with acrylic bonded 3M granules, specifically designed for roof applications, eliminating the commercial appearance of painted metal. It is essentially as if truck bed liner is sprayed on the steel with stone chips embedded and cured in an oven.
- When you consider the long life cycle, high performance, strength and durability that a Stone Coated Steel roof provides, then the cost per year is quite reasonable, even with asphalt shingles. We call this investment grade roofing, that pays you to own it.
- Stone Coated Steel lightweight roofing systems look great year after year and withstand the most harsh weather elements without a trace of wear and tear.
- Stone Coated Steel roofing systems are classified as UL 2218 Class 4 hail resistant, eligible for the maximum insurance discounts in the state of Texas.
