Every homeowner has different wants and needs when it comes to their roof. Here at Rhoden Roofing, we are committed to offering our customers a wide range of choices.
While asphalt shingles remain the most popular choice for roofing material, metal roofs are rapidly gaining traction. You have probably seen them making their way into neighborhoods in our area. Unfortunately, since they were originally used for agriculture and industrial roofs, many metal roofs can feel cold and uninviting. Many homeowners are not so keen on that utilitarian look, unsurprisingly.
Manufacturers are delivering great options to homeowners that give them the benefits of metal roofing without the industrialized aesthetic. One excellent option is the stone coated metal roof. Today the Wichita roofers are going to look at the benefits of this roofing material.
One of the benefits of metal roofing, in general, is that it’s incredibly durable so you won’t need to invest in another replacement any time soon. Metal roofs can tolerate extreme temperature changes, and they’re virtually indestructible by fire and highly resistant to rot. When you add a stone coating to the metal, these benefits are further enhanced. Stone-coated metal roofs can withstand even the most unforgiving weather. These roofs will never crack, they won’t warp, and they will not rot through either. The minimum expected lifespan for a stone coated metal roof is about 50 years.
Some roofing materials require a lot of upkeep, which can be expensive and restrictive. Thankfully, because stone coated metal roofing is so resistant to almost everything that can cause harm, there’s precious little maintenance required. These roofs will still look great 50 years from now.
As we said, typical metal roofing can leave your home looking a bit like a farmhouse or a factory. But today’s stone-coated metal roofs do nothing of the sort. The stone coating on the metal can offer your home a traditional look while still providing all the benefits of metal roofing.
Stone-coated metal roofs are available in a variety of colors, and they can be made to slot in neatly with your home’s aesthetic. Choose from finishes such as charcoal, timber wood, country blend, ironwood, and Barclay to create the home you desire.
Many homeowners are concerned with how their homes and the materials they use are going to affect the environment. Many traditional roofing choices are not great on this front, but stone-coated metal roofing leaves a pretty small eco-footprint. Top manufacturers use recycled steel in their roofing products.
Also, a stone-coated metal roof can help you run a more energy-efficient home. The combination of the metal and the stone can keep the external heat or cold air out while retaining the internal temperature.
When considering your roofing options for your home, a stone-coated metal roof is an excellent choice thanks to its durability, low upkeep, attractiveness, and energy efficiency. If you’re ready to move forward, call Rhoden Roofing in Wichita today for your free roofing estimate.
