Available in a range of colors, styles, and finishes, steel roofing is attractive, durable, and long lasting. Although the initial cost of steel roofing is generally higher than other types of roofing, it is economical in the long run. Steel roofing maintains its appearance and rarely, if ever, needs to be replaced. In addition, steel roofing saves energy all year round.
During the summer, it provides a cooling effect by reflecting sunlight and reducing the roof’s surface temperature, thus keeping the home more comfortable and reducing the load on the air conditioner. For example, a study by the Florida Power and Light Company reveals that white steel roofing reflects up to 77 percent of the sun’s energy during the day.
During winter months, a dead air buffer zone between an old roof and a new steel roof provides insulation. As a result, the heat remains inside the home where it belongs. The savings add up substantially over time.

While a traditional roof may require less of an initial investment than a stone-coated steel roof, the latter more than makes up for that investment by saving customers appreciably over the long term. For example, a roof composed of asphalt or composite shingles usually requires replacement 10 to 20 years after installation, but its stone-coated steel counterpart holds enough durability to make it the last roof a customer will buy.
Another benefit lies in the integrity of a steel roof. Other materials break down in the stress of the seasons, which includes blizzards, high speed winds, extremes of heat and cold, and other weather events harmful to most roofs. Stone-coated steel roofs stand up to such stresses without degrading at near the rate of traditional roofing options.
Allmet Roofing provides stone-coated steel products manufactured by Metals USA to customers throughout the United States and Canada. These products come with a lifetime warranty, the specific terms of which are available on the company’s website at www.allmet.com.
