Stone-Coated Steel DECRA Roof Replacement from Overhead Solutions
The Green Bay roof replacement experts at Overhead Solutions offer superior DECRA roof replacement. If you’re looking for a roof with the durability of a steel roof, but don’t care for the look of metal roofing (or how noisy they are when it rains), DECRA Roofing Systems are worth a look. DECRA is a stone-coated steel roofing system with a texture and style that isn’t possible with conventional metal roofing. It’s available in profiles that resemble shake roofing, shingles, or tile.
DECRA is the originator of the stone-coated steel shingle, and they have over 50 years of experience with the product. The innovative interlocking design enables a DECRA roof to withstand high winds and heavy rains. It’s lightweight, durable, resistant to freeze/thaw cycles, strong enough to be walked on, and requires virtually no maintenance. DECRA also insulates exceptionally well, making it a great choice for homes in the Green Bay area.
DECRA Roofing shingles provide 6 layers of protection
- Acrylic Priming System – Applied to both sides of the panel, this primer helps other layers adhere to the steel better.
- Aluminum-Zinc Alloy Coating – Protects against corrosion in most environments for more than 50 years (even for holes, scratches, and exposed edges).
- Structural-Grade Steel – With a 37ksi minimum tensile strength, the steel in DECRA shingles is strong enough to resist the most extreme weather, yet can be molded to fit the profile of most home structures.
- Basecoat – The adhesive bonding the stone and steel, the basecoat reinforces the corrosion-resistance of the aluminum-zinc coating.
- Ceramic-Coated Stone Granules – These protect the steel from UV light and water. Various colors available to complement your home’s color theme.
- Overglaze – This tough final coating adds resistance to the physical elements and helps the stone granules adhere to the steel plate.
