Stone Coated Steel Roofing

Stone Coated Steel Roofing

Most homes in the United States use asphalt or cedar shingles for their roofing. Both options have their downsides, the most frustrating of which is their endurance—shingles are prone to taking damage from the elements, costing the homeowner more in the long term.

Many people have turned to metal roofing options as an alternative. A roof made of stone-coated steel is one of the more popular options, especially in the last couple of decades. This roofing’s popularity is understandable since steel roofs have plenty of qualities to boast over asphalt and cedar.

What Is Stone-Coated Steel Roofing?

Unified Steel Stone Coated Roofing is manufactured from Galvalume® steel, then coated with stone granules that are applied with acrylic polymer adhesives. The result is a lightweight (1.5 lbs/sq. Ft.), durable, and cost-effective roofing system that offers the superior strength of steel and is ideal for new construction, re-roofing, and storm-damage applications. Unified Steel is also 100% recyclable on the roof at the end of its life.


Advantages of stone-coated steel


Metal roofs are known to last a long time if installed properly. Their life span ranges from 40–70 years, compared to asphalt shingles that need to be replaced approximately every 20 years. Because steel can endure much more than most traditional roofing materials, it’s a great investment in the long-term future of your home

Low Maintenance

Apart from removing debris and the occasional cleaning, stone-coated steel roofing requires little maintenance. It will not crack, curl, or fall off like asphalt shingles or wood shakes can.


Some other metal roofs require the use of a crane to install. This can get expensive and put you at risk for damage or injury if something goes wrong. Stone-coated steel is lightweight enough that a small roofing crew can handle it with ease.

Energy efficiency

A common misconception about installing a metal roof is that it will get too hot in the summer and conduct heat into the home. Metal roofing reflects heat from the sun, rather than absorbing it as a dark asphalt material would. This cuts down on the energy cost to keep your home cool and protects it from ultraviolet rays.

Environmentally Friendly

By using a material that’s 100% recyclable and made of mostly recycled materials, homeowners can feel good about choosing stone-coated steel.


Beauty and versatility

While functionality is essential, style and beauty are important, too. Stone-coated steel roofing comes in a wide variety of colors, textures, and designs to complement almost any style of home. This allows you to feel good about your roof’s safety and appearance! Check out this product lineup from Metro Roof Products to get a look at some popular stone-coated roofing finishes.
