The Pros and Cons of Stone-Coated Steel Roofing

The Pros and Cons of Stone-Coated Steel Roofing

There are a variety of material options for your roofing and choosing the right one takes some time and research. At Atlanta Pro Roofing, we have experience with maintaining, repairing, replacing, and installing many roof types, but one that we think deserves special attention is stone-coated steel roofing. This article is dedicated to reviewing the pros and cons of this increasingly popular roofing option. If you decide to make the upgrade to stone-coated steel roofing, then consider hiring the professionals at Atlanta Pro Roofing for your repair, replacement, and installation needs. We are also happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

What Is Stone-Coated Steel Roofing?

Just as the name suggests, stone-coated steel roofing is 24- or 26-gauge rolled steel sheets finished with a coating of stone. Usually, steel roofing has the appearance of traditional shingles with the durability of metal. Meanwhile, the stone-coating provides the aesthetic look that homeowners look for.

Pros of Stone-Coated Steel Roofing

This option has become popular over the years because of the following:

  • Longevity: Asphalt shingles last about 20 years, but metal roofs are known to last up to 70 years because they can endure much more. This saves homeowners in the long run on repair and replacement costs.
  • Durability: Steel is a sturdy metal able to withstand gusting winds, heavy rain, hail, and other forces of nature. It can also stand strong against impact caused by falling branches and trees.
  • Low Maintenance: While asphalt should be regularly inspected and maintained, steel can go for longer times without repair. In fact, steel roofs are virtually maintenance free.
  • Energy Efficient: You would be forgiven for thinking that metal will cause your building to get hot in the summer. To the contrary, however, steel and other metal roofing reflects heat from the sun rather than absorbing it. It is actually dark material such as asphalt that absorbs heat. By reflecting the sun’s heat, steel roofing will save on your cooling bills.
  • Aesthetics: Metal roofs might not look so beautiful, but stone-coated steel roofing offers the best of both worlds. You can enjoy the durability of steel as well as the beauty of stone. In fact, stone-coated steel roofing comes with a variety of colors, patterns, and textures to choose from. Find the product that best complements your home!

Cons of Stone-Coated Steel Roofing

Nothing is perfect and neither is stone-coated steel roofing. These are some of the drawbacks to be mindful of:

  • High Initial Cost: Though steel roofing lasts up to three times as long as asphalt roofing and is virtually maintenance-free, the initial cost of installing concrete-coated steel roofing is on the high end of roofing materials.
  • Noise: The sound of rain and hail hitting against steel roofing can be troublesome. However, your roofing specialist can apply special materials to act as a barrier between the noise and your home. There are also insulation options available.
