Exploring Stone-Coated Steel Roofing

What is Stone-Coated Steel and What Are Its Advantages?

Published On: October 29, 2022

If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional roofing, something that will last a lot longer with the advantage of making a statement, you should consider stone-coated steel.

What is stone-coated steel?

Stone-coated Steel is a high gauge Class 4 steel panel stamped to look like wood shake. It is then coated in a stone material that looks amazing.

What are its advantages?


Stone-coated steel is designed to withstand well over 140 MPH winds and hail the size of baseballs, meaning the long-term cost of this system is definitely cheaper than traditional roofing systems.

If properly installed, metal roofs are known to last a long time, ranging anywhere from 40–70 years. When compared to asphalt shingles that need to be replaced approximately every 20 years, it’s easy to see why investing in a stone-coated steel roof is a smart idea. And if you’re in your forever home, stone-coated steel is a no-brainer.

Low Maintenance

Standard roofing materials like asphalt shingles should be regularly inspected to keep them in good condition. Steel roofs, on the other hand, are virtually maintenance free! They create a thick shield around your home, keeping it safer from poor weather conditions and eliminating most of the repair costs associated with traditional roofing.


The style and beauty of your home is important, adding property value and curb appeal. Stone-coated steel roofing comes in a wide variety of colors, textures, and designs to complement almost any style of home. There’s no easier way to add a wow-factor to your home than with this amazing roofing system.
