WATCH video series: Why stone-coated steel roofing?


Wind, rain, sun and extreme weather conditions can affect roofs, causing significant damage. Unfortunately, traditional roofing materials are not holding up to these conditions, often resulting in leaking and costly damage to a property.

Customers are demanding more from the materials used in their homes so they can ensure their families will be protected, whatever the weather. Similarly, contractors want quality roofing solutions that are easier and faster to install.

If you’re looking for a better quality roofing tile with manufacturer support, and want to find new buyers in a competitive market, look no further.

A durable, cost effective and aesthetically pleasing roofing solution, stone-coated steel panels will stand up to extreme weather conditions, use innovative technology, are faster to install and have a longer lifespan than traditional materials.
