HOW LONG HAS METAL/ STEEL ROOFING BEEN AROUND?
Metal roofing materials has a proven track record. Since early 1800s, lead, tin, zinc & copper were the choice materials used for roofing and can still be seen today on historic buildings all over the
world, longevity you can trust. The product specs & technology today bears little resemblance to early products due to advances in the chemistry of color coatings.
CAN YOU WALK ON A STEEL ROOF?
Yes indeed. Although some care must be exercised while walking on the roof and you should only place your foot on the flat section on the tile, Roofers can freely walk over the stellar tile during and after the installation process.
IS A METAL ROOF NOISY DURRING THE RAIN?
No. The modular tile system and the ASV ventilation space between the steel panel and the underlay reduces exterior noise even in a heavy and severe rainstorm.
HOW WILL A METAL TILE ROOF STAND UP TO EXTREME WEATHER?
Our metal tile roof can literally withstand abuse from extreme weather conditions for decades, including high winds, humidity, heat, rain and hail. Stellar tile has undergone many field tests,
confirming the products is fire, freeze/thaw, earthquake resistant and can withstand gale -force winds.
WILL A STEEL ROOF CORRODE OR RUST?
The Zinc coating [275g / m²] – min. 275) steel has been formulated to provide long lifespan and is superior to other coatings. This type of coating provides and enhances corrosion resistance, making it ideal for roofing applications manufacturing, thus commonly referred as “The final Roofing System”, that is backed with a lifetime warranty.
DO THE COLOURS FADE?
The history of metal tile’s products assures & demonstrates that fading is not a problem. Metal tile’s uses the steel substrates with the highest quality coating/painting processes with established and world-renowned suppliers such as SSAB, Marcegaglia and ArcelorMittal.
WHAT IS THE CARBON FOOTPRINT FOR ENVIRONMENT? AND IS THE ROOFING MATERIAL
Yes, one hundred percent of most metal roofing materials are recyclable ensuring the carbon footprint is next to minimal. Other roofing products are made of non-recyclable material, polluting landfills and degrading our precious environment.
IS A STEEL ROOF FIRE RESISTANT & FIRE SAFE?
Metal/Steel roofing is classified as a non-combustible roofing material (Class A). In reroofing and new construction applications the metal roofing system is a Class a non-combustible roof assembly. Meaning one of the most resistant roofing products to fire.
IS STEEL ROOFING ENERGY EFFICIENCIENT?
Metal roofs have a high solar reflectivity, and together with ASV (above sheathing ventilation) contributes to the overall energy efficiency of your home.
IS RUN OFF WATER FROM METAL ROOF USABLE?
Yes, rainwater collected from metal roofs is safe to reuse. After installation of new roof, waiting for two good rainfalls before beginning collection will ensure clean reusable water. Unlike, those asphalt shingle roofs that leach chemicals into the water runoff, rendering collected rainwater unusable.
ARE STEEL ROOFS MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO LIGHTNING STRIKES?
Steel roofing is “definitely no more susceptible” to lightning than other roofing materials. It has been demonstrated and is known fact that lightning strikes most frequently the highest points of any area. Whereas and where concerns do exist, the lightning rods can be installed on highest point of roofing area.
