BENEFITS OF STEEL

DURABLE

Western Sierra Roofing Systems have a 50-year limited warranty against 120 mph winds and penetrating hail. The interlocking steel panels provide a weather-tight barrier against the elements.

Steel Roofing Systems are manufactured according to methods that have been certified to ISO 9002 standards. Steel panels are pressure formed zinc/aluminum alloy coated steel with an acrylic bonded stone chip finish. The zinc/aluminum alloy coated steel provides superior corrosion resistance.

The stone chip finish resists fading and uv-ray penetration. Its non-porous surface also resists freezing and thawing in cold climates.

Steel roofing panels are non-combustible (rated Class A material), and won't crack, break, warp, curl or split.

ENERGY EFFICIENT

Due to the installation method of these products, a dead air space is created of approximately 2-1/2 inches. This turns the existing roofing product into an excellent radiant barrier, which account for temperature differences between inside and outside temperatures of up to 20 degrees without the use of air conditioning.

These are roofing systems that save you money or just make you feel more comfortable each and every day.

ATTRACTIVE

Steel roofing is available in an assortment of shapes, colors and styles which resemble standard architectural roofing materials including tile, slate, asphalt shingles, and cedar shakes.

ROOF STYLES

Tile roofing panels replicate the natural beauty of clay tile. These roofing systems have a long-standing reputation for performance, longevity, versatility and beauty. They offer an appealing lightweight alternative to traditional tile products.

These Roofing Systems allow maximum design flexibility and enhance all types of projects from residential to commercial. They can be used in re-roof and new construction applications.

The tiles are pressure formed zinc/aluminum alloy coated steel with an acrylic bonded stone chip finish.

Features & Benefits

Shingles provide a high-performance, long-lasting, lightweight alternative to traditional shingles.

The installation process for this unique stone coated steel shingle system is designed to closely replicate that of traditional roofing materials. This product is excellent to re-roof over existing roofs.

The shingles are pressure formed zinc/aluminum alloy coated steel with an acrylic bonded stone chip finish.

FACTS & MYTHS

WEIGHT:

The steel roofing system weighs in at a total weight of 2 lbs. per sq. ft. The shakes weigh approximately 1 lb. per sq. ft. The total of 3 lbs is well below the minimum dead load rating of 7 lbs. per sq. ft. that your roof was built to support.

WEIGHT:

The steel roofing system is attached directly to the rafter works (rafter and space sheathing boards) by nailing a 1 by 4 with a 16-penny nail through the shakes and through the rafter works with an inch of penetration. The system adds 300% shear strength to the exterior walls of your home.

TERMITES/INSECTS:

Wood shake roofs in Northern California are made with either redwood or cedar. The two reasons for this are that both redwood and cedar hold up to the elements significantly better than other types of wood and they also have a powerful resistance to insects. i.e. cedar closets and cedar chests.

FIRE:

Steel roofing systems provide excellent protection from exterior fires, have helped contain interior fires, and don't allow the fire to be easily spread to other homes in the neighborhood. The 2 1/2 inch dead air space is filled with insulation and doesn't allow fire to spread through this space.

ROT:

Dry rot is really mis-named. It should be called wet rot. The reason for this is that three things must take place in order to have dry rot (wet rot). 1. The wood must be wet. 2. The wood must be wet for a substantial continuous period of time. 3. The wood must be exposed to the fungus that eats through the wood. Dry rot is typically found in the eaves of a home either due to a failed guttering system or where unpainted or failed eave boards have been wet and exposed to exterior fungus. i.e. trees, bushers, leaves, etc.

MOSS/MILDEW/PLANT LIFE:

The steel roofing system is totally water tight but not totally airtight. This allows water to evaporate out from under the tiles and kills and prevents plant life from existing. No additional moisture can enter the system.

SHAKES:

The shakes have nothing to do with the installation either structurally or functionally.

RADIANT BARRIER:

The shakes allowed to remain in place will act as a radiant barrier keeping excessive hot air out in the summer and warm air in during the winter. This results in dramatic energy savings and/or more comfort.

TEAR OFF:

Tearing off the existing roof results in a more costly and less efficient roofing system. Also it exposes the interior of your home to the elements, increases the risk of additional damage done as a direct result of the tear off, and it will spread dust, dirt, and other such debris into the attic/crawl space and around your home.
