Customers across Colorado and Kansas are already experiencing the benefits of stone coated steel roofing because it’s a product developed for better performance. The pride of DECRA Roofing Systems is found in the physical characteristics it possesses. The main component—steel—is lightweight and does not burn or break, while its stone coating resists UV penetration and fading.

When it comes time for hanging holiday lights, installing satellite dishes, or repainting the house, you may find yourself wondering if your current roofing system is going to withstand the pressure of your weight without cracking. You know that even the slightest damage can lead to rain leakage, causing interior water damage. When using a DECRA roofing system, you can be confident knowing they are made with 26-gauge steel. Another standout feature is found in its lightweight composition. DECRA stone coated steel roofs weigh half as much as typical composition shingle roofs, meaning they are light enough for installation over an existing cedar shake or composition shingle roof. This can eliminate a messy, somewhat hazardous, and costly tear-off. Installing over pre-existing roofing also means you’re adding another layer of insulation. Many stone coated steel customers throughout Colorado and Kansas, including those who did not install over pre-existing roofing, have reported a reduction in their energy costs during both summer and winter when using DECRA.

And what about weather? You can also have peace of mind knowing that extremely strong winds, hail, heavy snow loads, and freezing temperatures will not compromise the durability of a stone coated steel roof—all very real concerns for those located in climates which experience such harsh and unpredictable conditions as the those living in Colorado and Kansas. DECRA Roofing systems carry a 50-year warranty against 120 mph winds and Class 4 Impact Resistance on penetrating hail.

On the off chance you may one day encounter a fire at your home or business, it’s important to consider how your roofing system will respond. Another benefit of this stone coated steel roofing system is that it’s made of noncombustible material. This means DECRA Roofing Systems will not catch fire. By being impervious to the effects of internal and external flames, a fire below can be contained more quickly. And an added bonus for firefighters is the strength of these roofing systems.
