Let's talk about Stone Coated Steel Roofing Systems from DECRA® Imagine the beauty of an architectural shake or tiled look on your home but with the durability to have a Class A fire rating, and a Class 4 impact resistance to Hail, to be warranted against winds up to 120 mph and to be covered by a transferable 50 year limited warranty.
Hope I have your attention now. The concept of Stone Coated Steel Roofing has been around for decades. In fact the original inventor of the Decra system first saw the concept in use during a tour of Europe after World War II. It has evolved over the years into a durable and beautiful finished product.
Today DECRA® products are manufactured with a solid but lightweight aluminum-zinc alloy coated steel, which is then covered with 3M ceramic coated stone granules and sealed with an exclusive polymer coating.
The DECRA® roofing system comes in a wide variety of styles and colors. So lets begin with the Italian old world classic elegance of DECRA® VILLA TILE. Villa Tile will give you the architectural detail of an Italian tile roof with the durability and superior performance of steel. Closely related you might find the DECRA® TILE more to your liking. This panel has more of a Mediterranean look with all the same great features.
If your taste leans more to the architectural look then you can choose between DECRA® SHINGLE, DECRA® SHINGLE PLUS, or the deep profile of the DECRA® SHAKE. Shake will give you the deep profile of a cedar roof without the weather fading look. Decra Shingle is the most cost effective system offered giving you the look that will match the finest architectural shingle, and Shingle Plus gives you a deeper richer shingle texture at a fraction of the weight of asphalt shingles.
