Stone Coated Steel Roofing
Whether you’re looking for a slate, tile, shingle or cedar shake look, Vicwest has a stone coated steel roof profile to match. A stone coated steel roof looks just like the real thing, yet it is more economical to install and also more durable, with none of the structural drawbacks. It also provides fire resistance and superior protection against extreme weather conditions.
With traditional roofing materials such as asphalt or “composition” shingles, re-roofing may be required every 10 to 15 years – or even sooner! By comparison, a stone coated steel roof, which carries a limited lifetime warranty, could very well be the last roof you will ever buy.
A match of modern innovation and old Victorian panache
The Tudor Slate profile is an attractive roofing alternative that recreates the look of old Victorian slate with all the benefits of steel. It is very lightweight and provides extreme resistance against heavy rain, strong winds and large hail. Compliments Victorian era homes and farm houses alike.
Low maintenance, high durability
Manufactured from high quality Galvalume™ steel that is coated with an acrylic basecoat, ceramic earth-stone granules are then embedded over this basecoat and sealed with a clear acrylic glaze. This textured finish reflects the remarkable beauty of rustic wood shakes while providing your home with a long-lasting, durable and fade-resistant protection for a lifetime of enjoyment.
A tribute to a time when tile making was an art form
Inspired by the Talavera artisans of ancient Mexico, the Talavera panel, a modern version of their beautiful clay tile craftsmanship, is designed to be installed directly on the deck or, alternately, on battens. The continuous design provides a flat section that allows for superior footing over conventional tiles and, like all of Vicwest’s steel roofing profiles, it is extremely lightweight. The design of Talavera pays tribute to the traditional tile profiles found for centuries in Europe and Latin America.
An elegant, architectural shingle appearance
Granite Ridge architectural shingles create an elegant shingle-like look that will compliment any home, cottage or backyard structure. Less than half the weight of wood shakes and eight times lighter than tile, Granite Ridge delivers the aesthetics of asphalt shingles but is a much more durable choice—available in three standard colors sure to match any homes exterior. May sometimes be installed over existing asphalt shingles.
