As the original stone coated steel roofing system, the DECRA® product line represents a perfect blending of over 50 years of research and practical experience. Offering the ultimate in performance and engineering design is what DECRA Roofing Systems are all about. Stone Coated Steel products are unique. Stone coated and pressed into different profiles, DECRA products offer texture and style not found in traditional metal roofing products.
As a substrate, steel provides the perfect medium for pressing panels to resemble various conventional materials: asphalt shingles, clay tiles, concrete tiles, and wood shakes. However, unlike conventional products, stone coated steel is lightweight, durable, freeze/thaw resistant, walkable and require little to no maintenance over the life of the roof.
Unlike standing seam metal roofs, DECRA Roofing Systems are not installed vertically; panels are smaller, interlocking and install horizontally. The interlocking feature aids in leak prevention, and the design keeps the panels in place during a storm.
Metal roofing is becoming the choice of architects, builders and homeowners that are concerned with sustainable design, or “green” building. DECRA’s products contain upwards of 25% recycled steel, have a life cycle of more than 50 years, and are energy efficient. Additionally, our products are suitable for use with water catchment systems, and solar panel systems.
All DECRA products are manufactured from steel, a noncombustible material, have a Class A fire rating, a limited, transferable 50-year warranty – covering manufacturing defects including loss of appearance and/or excessive granule loss – a 120 mph wind-uplift warranty and a Class 4 UL impact resistance rating, the highest available. And, they have been proven in the market for over fifty years.
