Steel Shingle Roofing
Steel Shingle roofing has benefits that make it a popular choice for homeowners. They come in a variety of styles but none more popular than steel shake. Steel shake is made to look like hand-split cedar, Stone and tile look also available. Steel Shingle roofing has proven to be very energy efficient and provide great protection against leaks. Steel Shingle is lightweight and fire-resistant as well.
However, aluminum roofing has a downside. Structurally it will last for a long time, but because it is stronger than lightweight material such as aluminum it is not cosmetically damaged by even the smallest hail giving it a class 4 impact resistance . Aluminum has led to a group of roofing companies that try to sell you a “LIFETIME” energy efficient roof every few years. Insurance companies are catching on to this practice and soon all of them will likely require a “cosmetic waiver” on all aluminum roofs. Even though it may not leak, many homeowners will be left with a damaged looking roof that their insurance company may not pay for again. Which is why we have replaced the aluminum shingle products with Steel Shingle products they simply last longer and protect you as customer better!
NexGen Roofs can help you get your insurance company to pay for your aluminum shake roof and replace with another roofing material such as steel shingle, stone coated steel, tile, or slate if you desire. Although we can expertly install any aluminum shake roof, we normally don’t recommend the product in the DFW roofing market. Give us a call soon while insurance companies are still paying for aluminum roofs in the metroplex and we can show you what options may be available for your home.
Stone Coated Steel Roofing
