Thinking about getting stone coated steel roofing for your home?

When you look at replacing your roof, you’ll most probably consider traditional materials like asphalt shingles or tiles before anything else. Most of us don’t even think about metal as a roofing material, especially not stone coated steel roofing, even though it has significant advantages over other materials!

If you’re worried about the aesthetic of a bare metal roof, you can opt for stone-coated metal roofing instead. This interesting material offers the distinct advantages of metal roofing with the perfect dash of style to give it the right aesthetic while being one of the most durable options on the market. 

Stone-coated metal roofing comes in 24 or 26-gauge rolled sheets that have a rust preventative coating, finished with a thick stone layer. This final layer sticks permanently to the metal surface, giving the metal roof the appearance of stone, which is far more attractive than a bare metallic exterior.

If you’re considering replacing your roof, read on to find out why stone coated steel roofs are a fantastic choice.

Energy Efficient

Most people think that metal roofs are poor insulators, leading to a hot home in summer and a freezing interior during the winter. The surprising truth is that metal roofs, in general, are energy efficient, since they reflect most of the heat away without absorbing too much of it.

It protects your home from UV rays and keeps it fresher in summer, which means that you spend less money on cooling your home. Stone-coated metal roofs work in the same way and can reflect a significant amount of heat without becoming hot themselves.


Steel is a resilient material and can endure a lot of damage that other roofing materials can’t handle. It can handle heavy rains and winds, withstanding hail and other adverse weather conditions. It’s also light when compared to other roofing materials, making it easier to install.

Low Maintenance

Asphalt shingles and tiles need to be regularly inspected for damage since they can crack easily. Stone coated steel roofing doesn’t need nearly as much attention, due to the durability of steel. Since steel can handle any adverse weather conditions, you can spend less time repairing damage sustained during inclement weather. The stone coating is specifically designed to be resistant to fading and algae, so you barely have to worry about maintenance.

Long Lifespan

Traditional roofing materials usually have an average lifespan of twenty years, with a regular maintenance plan. Properly installed metal roofs last longer, though—they can last for up to seventy years in a favorable climate. Much of this can be attributed to the fact that steel is so much more durable than other materials.

It is also powerfully resistant to damage, which makes it an excellent long-term investment.

Wide Range of Styles

Ideally, you want a roofing material that matches the style of your home, which can be difficult if you look at traditional asphalt shingles or tiles. Since stone-coated steel roofing is manufactured, it can come in any style, texture, and color you can imagine. No matter the style of your home, you’ll find a stone-coated steel finish that works for you.

Is Stone Coated Steel Roofing Right for You?

Getting a new roof for your home is a big decision and finding the right roofing material is just one factor of it. Stone coated steel roofing is a great option in terms of aesthetics and durability, but like all roofing materials, it has its downsides. This is why it is crucial to do your research and find what is best for you and your situation.

Once you have found the right material, it is time to find a quality contractor to trust with installing your new roof. Regardless of the material you decided on, choosing the right contractor will play a heavy roll in how long your roof will last. This is why it is crucial for you to find an experienced contractor who will get the job done right.

We were in a bad spot with a leaky roof down at work but being a small business owner I can’t afford to be taken advantage of. So glad we chose PFM. Brad gave us a great deal was professional and fixed everything in a timely manner. What a blessing.

Like many of the homes in the area, we had some shingles blow off after being hit hard by Wednesday evenings storm. There was not an excessive amount of damage, but enough that we needed some minor repairs.I spoke with a couple of different companies on Thursday. While they were friendly, their main objective was to take a deposit to put a tarp on my roof and try to get my insurance company involved.While considering the options I noticed PFM Roofing was completing a job just up the road, so I stopped off to talk with Rusty and his crew. They were happy to speak with me and look over some photos I had taken of the damage. After a short conversation he quoted me a reasonable amount to complete the repairs, and even better told me he could have it done the next day. Sure enough, today they showed up to replace the missing shingles and nail down any other shingles that had been raised by the storm.Overall it was a great experience. If you are in the same boat and have some roof damage that needs worked on it is worth your time to give these guys a call!

We called PFM to come repair the repair made by a less reputable company. I had some questions so the owner promptly reached out to me and took plenty of time to address them one by one. I could tell he takes great pride in his company's work and wants his customers to be 100% satisfied. Would highly recommend to anyone in need of professional roofing services.
