Why You Should Choose DECRA Roofing

By | Blog, Eco-Friendly Options, Roofing | No Comments

If you are serious about upgrading your roof, or are looking to take advantage of a recent construction project to completely overhaul your roof lines and the roofing material that you have on your home, you’re going to want to make sure that you research all of the benefits that DECRA roofing materials have to offer compared to more traditional solutions.

Easily one of the most popular alternative roofing material options available on the market today, you’d have to crazy not to investigate whether or not this stone-coated metal roofing solution can meet your needs – and exceed your expectations – all at a price point that is almost too good to be true.

Top-tier Luxury Look at a Fraction of the Price

The beautiful thing about DECRA roofing solutions is that they are absolutely gorgeous and provide you with the kind of luxury look and finish you’re looking to add to your home at a fraction of the price of traditional luxury roofing materials.

Many of the DECRA products are designed to resemble terra-cotta, copper roof materials, cedar or slate roofing materials, and a whole host of other incredibly expensive roofing options that most people decide not to go with strictly because of the overall price.

But when you’re able to substitute those expensive options for the less expensive, but no less attractive DECRA materials, it becomes a no-brainer.

Eco-Friendly Roofing Components that Lessen your Environmental Footprint

Another big advantage that you are going to enjoy when you move forward with DECRA is the advantage of knowing that you are dramatically lessening your environmental footprint while protecting your roof and your property.

Each and every one of these DECRA products have been designed to lower your environmental footprint, and to utilize sustainable materials so that you don’t have to worry about polluting our environment any further.

They are one of the most environmentally friendly roofing materials you’re going to come across, and thanks to their amazing durability you can depend on these materials for years and years to come.

Completely Customizable to Any Roof Configuration Imaginable

While some roofing materials (metal, copper, and slate roofs in particular) are almost impossible to install on certain roofs that have particularly complex configurations, that’s never going to be a problem when you move forward with DECRA products.

Each and every one of these roof solutions have been designed to accommodate almost any roof configuration unimaginable. No matter how many hips or valleys your roof has you’re guaranteed to be able to take advantage of DECRA products to get the job done – and to get the job done right the first time around!

It’s nice to know that you (or your roofing professionals) will be working with a flexible material that can accommodate most any of your project specifications.

It just doesn’t get much better than that!

Effortless to Maintain and with One of the Best Roofing Material Warranties in the Industry

Finally, you are going to fall in love with absolutely everything that the DECRA warranty has to offer.

One of the longest warranties in the industry (it is a lifetime warranty, after all), you are going to be able to depend on these roofing products to get the job done for decades and decades longer than traditional roofing materials could ever hope to.

It’s nice to know that you’re only going to have to invest in a brand-new roof once in your lifetime – rather than changing out your roofing shingles every ten years or so with more budget-focused and short-term solutions.
