DECRA Roofs Handle the Harshest Weather Conditions - Image 1
DECRA roofs are a proven system, excelling through some of the harshest weather conditions around the world for over 50 years. Steel is strong and non-combustible (Class A Rated material),* making it an outstanding performer when it comes to hail and fire. The interlocking panels won’t crack, break, warp, curl or split and they are covered by a transferable Lifetime Limited Warranty, including peace of mind coverage for winds up to 120 MPH and hail penetration. A DECRA roof is durable, freeze-thaw resistant and will offer richness and beauty to enhance your home. With the severe weather conditions we have been experiencing, now is a great time for a DECRA stone coated steel roof to protect your home and family.

Why stone-coated steel?
Are metal roofs noisy?
No, the stone coated steel design of a DECRA roof dampens the sound of the rain and even hail, unlike a non-stone coated metal roof.

Is a metal roof hotter in the summer and colder in the winter?
No, many customers report a reduction in energy costs and improved interior home comfort during summer and winter months after installing a DECRA roof. Also, a DECRA roof can be installed over an existing roof, providing additional insulation from temperature extremes. (check local code requirements)

Is a metal roof dangerous in weather with lightning?
No, metal roofing is both an electrical conductor, and a noncombustible material.

Can I get a discount on my homeowners insurance?
In many states, the Class 4 impact resistance rating can earn a discount on homeowners insurance. Just ask your local agent for details in your state.

Is a DECRA Roofing System more expensive?
A DECRA roof offers more value for your money. You would have to purchase and install 2-1/2 shingle roofs for the cost of one DECRA roof. Like most products you buy, “you get what you pay for.”

Is DECRA the “original stone coated steel roofing system”?
Yes, DECRA has a long history and is the original stone coated steel roofing system developed by L.J. Fisher in 1957.
