Stone coated steel is one of the best roofing materials on the market. It comes from all over the world depending on manufacturer. It is a class 4 system, meaning it is hail resistant up to 2.5 inches; with a 110 MPH wind warranty and a 50 year manufacturer warranty. The stone coated steel panels are raised off the decking 2 inches creating an energy efficient roof that can breathe.
Depending on profile and manufacture the panels vary in length, depth, and height. The most common systems are on battens spaced apart accordingly. We use all synthetic felt on the field and ice and water in the valleys. We offer open and closed valleys to fit your needs. Here in Texas everyone wants to save money and getting a stone coated steel roof is one of many ways to do so.
It is very important you know who is on your roof. Yes stone coated steel can last a lifetime, but the roof can be damaged very easily if not careful. The most common kind of damage I run into is foot fall. This is when an uneducated person gets on the roof causing severe damage. Not only is it structural damage that cannot be fixed easily but it also looks terrible. We coach all of our homeowners to call us before anyone gets on the roof.
When you purchase a roof through Ray & Sons Construction, you will receive a complete roofing system, free yearly maintenance inspections to help insure the roof reaches its life expectancy* and 100% customer satisfaction.
