Why Stone-Coated Metal Roofing Is A Good Idea

BRAX Roofing gaithersburg

The desire for a home with the perfect roofing system is something that every homeowner has, and at BRAX Roofing, we’re committed to providing our customers with the very best in roofing options.

While asphalt shingles remain the most popular choice for roofing material, metal roofs are rapidly gaining traction. You have probably seen them making their way into neighborhoods in the Fairfax area. Unfortunately, since they were originally used for agriculture and industrial roofing, many metal roofs can feel cold and uninviting. Many homeowners are not so keen on that utilitarian look.

A stone-coated metal roof is a great option for homeowners who want the benefits of metal roofs without their industrial aesthetic. These excellent options are available, and today we’re going to look at why this might be your best bet for your next roof installation project.


One of the benefits to metal roofing, in general, is that it’s incredibly durable, so you won’t need to invest in another replacement any time soon. Metal roofs can tolerate extreme temperature changes, and they’re virtually indestructible by fire and highly resistant to rot. When you add a stone coating to the metal, these benefits are further enhanced. Stone-coated metal roofs can withstand even the most unforgiving weather. These roofs will never crack, they won’t warp, and they will not rot through either. The minimum expected lifespan for a stone-coated metal roof is about 50 years.


Stone-coated metal roofs are a great investment. These materials will look fabulous for decades and require almost zero maintenance in the meantime, which is perfect both for homeowners with limited time to keep up their homes or businesses who want something that lasts without any fuss at all.

Curb Appeal

As we said, typical metal roofing can leave your home looking a bit like a farmhouse or a factory. But today’s stone-coated metal roofs do nothing of the sort. The stone coating on the metal can offer your home a traditional look while still providing all the benefits of metal roofing. Stone-coated metal roofs are available in a variety of colors, and they can be made to slot in neatly with your home’s aesthetic. Choose from finishes such as charcoal, timber wood, country blend, ironwood, and Barclay to set off your home a treat.


There are many pros to a stone-coated metal roof regarding environmental impact, but where does that leave the homeowner? Stone-coated metal is much more durable than traditional roofing and will save you money on your utility bills. It also has a smaller eco-footprint, which makes the Earth happy.

Also, a stone-coated metal roof can help you run a more energy-efficient home. The metal and stone combination keeps the external heat or cold air out while retaining the internal temperature.

When considering your roofing options for your home, a stone-coated metal roof is an excellent choice, thanks to its durability, low upkeep, attractiveness, and energy efficiency. If you’re ready to move forward, call BRAX Roofing today!
