DECRA Roofing Systems represent a new generation in roofing design. No longer the domain of historic mansions and museums, metal roofs are quickly becoming the choice among builders, architects, homeowners, and even insurance companies. As one customer told his contractor, “The best roof is one you can forget.” DECRA Roofing Systems offer the latest in technology and appearance. The high-tech infrastructure is counterbalanced by the lasting beauty. DECRA roofs are a trend likely to become the standard among commercial and residential customers. Perhaps that is why DECRA roofs are often called, “The last roof you will ever have to buy.”
They offer contractors faster installation than conventional roofs. The newest generation of DECRA shingle roofs are easy to install because each panel locks into another like puzzle pieces. Instead of laying tile and shingles one at a time, the modular 4-foot sections can be uploaded quickly and easily—covering more area in less time. That matters a great deal when retrofitting office complexes, large housing tracts, and institutional buildings. Compared to past generations of metal roofs, the new DECRA shingle is among the easiest roofs to install on the market.
They are ideal for flat to pitch conversions and can even be installed over existing roofs without the need for tear-off. Structural support is generally not required and light gauge steel trusses provide the necessary framework to install a DECRA roof. The steel base can be walked on after installation, too. Nails are installed horizontally to provide greater resistance against vertical pullout due to high wind conditions. Perhaps best of all, the DECRA roof comes with a transferable 50-year limited warranty against wind damage and hail penetration.
DECRA Roofing Systems are manufactured according to methods that have been certified to ISO 9002 standards. DECRA 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, manufactured by 3M for roofing use, resists fading and uv-ray penetration. Its non-porous surface also resists freezing and thawing in cold climates. DECRA roofing panels are non-combustible (rated Class A material), and won’t crack, break, warp, curl or split. It carries a 50-year warranty against 120 mph winds and penetrating hail. The interlocking steel panels provide a weather-tight barrier against the elements.
