FAQ's

How heavy is it?

SteelROCK roofs weigh only 1.5 lbs. per square foot, far less than wet wood shakes, less than composition shingles, and 5 to 10 lbs. per square foot less than concrete. You will not need to re-engineer or reinforce your existing roof structure. SteelROCK panels are light enough to be installed over most existing roofs.

Will it break?

SteelROCK roof tiles are formed of steel, so breakage is not an issue. They will not break, crack, or de-laminate like many other roofing materials.

Can I walk on my roof?

Yes. Our roofs are strong! When walking on the roof, wear soft-soled shoes, walk on the "nose" of the panels across the roof and in the "pans" when walking up and down the roof.

Will it burn?

Steel doesn't burn. It will protect your home from flying embers even in a firestorm where a stiff wind blows burning particles across your roof.

How good is your Warranty?

This is where SteelROCK Roofing Products really shine! Our LIFETIME limited WARRANTY is the best in the industry! In so many words you are protected from manufacturing defects in both the steel itself AND the surface coating for as long as you own your home. If you transfer your warranty to the next successive owner, that owner is covered for 50 years from the date the roof was installed. The warranty is non-prorated for 50 years no matter how many times it is transferred. A real selling point for you, and real protection for them! This is a real win-win warranty for all involved. Read other warranties carefully and see what they really say!

Isn't a steel roof more expensive?

The old adage "you get what you pay for" certainly holds true here. Yes, composition roofs are "cheaper" but you'll only pay for a steel roof once. When you sell your house the added value of a SteelROCK stone coated steel roof will more than pay for itself.

What about a qualified contractor?

Probably the most important phase of the roof construction process is choosing the right company and personnel to install your new roof. Check their license with the state board, their ability to insure the job and have them provide a list of homes they have installed under their license.

How many colors does SteelROCK provide?

There are 10 attractive colors and 10 mediterranean blends that give the appearance of old world Spanish tile and will compliment most every home exterior. See the back cover of our brochure which you can download from our Home Page for examples, but ask your contractor for actual stone coated samples of the tiles before choosing a color for your home. You can also review our tile samples on our "Products" Page.

How do I maintain my roof?

There is little you have to do to maintain your SteelROCK Roof. Perhaps rinsing every few years if your area suffers from a lack of rain but other than that, your SteelROCK roof should remain maintenance free for many, many years to come.
