Denver Decra Stone Coated Steel Installation

Out with the old curled up wood shake roof! In with the new Class 4 Decra Stone Coated Steel roof! This new roof looks shake-like and is absolutely stunning. This home looks new again.

This is a neighborhood called Columbine Knolls South and the HOA requires homeowners to replace their old wood shake roofs with something that is safer, longer-lasting, and fits the original look and feel of the neighborhood. The answer to these requirements is Decra Stone Coated steel roofing, installed by New Roof Plus.

Stone-coated steel offers a home or building owner a long list of benefits. The greatest benefit is its durability. As a Class 4 rated roofing material, it can withstand hail that other roofs can not handle. Same for wind resistance. We just had a super-strong wind event here in the Denver area and many roofs lost a lot of shingles. Not so with a properly installed stone coated Decra roof from New Roof Plus.

This material is also Class 4 rated for fire protection. A serious concern if you live in a wooded or mountainous area here in Colorado. This material will not burn.

The Decra stone-coated steel installation process is designed to secure the metal sections to the roof. As you can see in this picture of a home getting  a new roof in Littleton, at the preparation stage, battens are secured to the roof to tie-in each section of the new metal roofing system.

Columbine Knolls South is similar to many other HOA’s in Denver. They want a secure neighborhood that has consistent quality expectations for all homes in the HOA or POA.  If your HOA or POA is eliminating wood shake as an option, let us know and we can help you design the new look that can give your house back it’s “Wow!”
