Can I Walk On My Roof ?

Yes. Our roofs are strong! When walking on the roof, wear soft-soled shoes, walk on the “nose” of the panels across the roof and in the “pans” when walking up and down the roof.

&

Isn’t a metal roof noisy?

Metal roofs that are uncoated or painted can be noisy. Stonehenge stone coated metal roofs are protected by coatings of acrylic and stone that deaden the sound of rain or hail. The “dead air” space under each tile turns a torrential downpour into a dull hum no louder than you are used to with any of the temporary roofing systems (wood shake, asphalt shingle or clay tile for example.)

&

Won’t a metal roof be hot in summer?

The short answer is no, a Stonehenge metal roof will not be hot in the summer. In fact you will find that in many cases your attic will be 15 to 20 degrees cooler. This is because of the air space under the tiles and because Stonehenge metal roofs do not absorb the heat. When the sun goes down and asphalt and tile roofs are still transferring heat into the house a Stonehenge roof has cooled. Since your Stonehenge roof does not absorb and hold heat, your home’s air conditioning works less saving you more in energy costs.

&

How heavy is it?

Stonehenge roofs weigh only 1.4 lbs. per square foot, far less than wood shakes, less than composition shingles, and 5 to 10 lbs. per square foot less than concrete. You will not need to re-engineer or reinforce your existing roof structure. Stonehenge tiles are light enough to be installed over most existing roofs.

&

Will it break?

Stonehenge roof tiles are formed of steel, so breakage is not an issue. They will not break, crack, or de-laminate like many other roofing materials.

&

Will it burn?

No. A Stonehenge roof will not burn because steel will not burn and the coating is also fireproof. This means Stonehenge is a UL “Class A” fire rated roof. You will not have to worry about blowing, burning embers landing on your roof and setting your home on fire.

&

Isn’t a steel roof more expensive?

The old adage “you get what you pay for” certainly holds true here. Yes, composition roofs are “cheaper” but you’ll only pay for a steel roof once. When you sell your house the added value of a Stonehenge stone coated steel roof will more than pay for itself.

&

What about a qualified contractor?

Since our company does not warranty the actual installation of Stonehenge (only the product) it is very important that you choose your contractor carefully. Check the contractor’s license, and their ability to insure the job. Have them provide a list of homes on which they have installed a Stonehenge roof under their license and check their workmanship.

&

Do I have a large list of colors to choose from?

This is another very important question. Since you are putting on a Lifetime Roofing System, your roof and roof color will be with you for as long as you own your home. We have a large color palate providing you and your contractor the ability to pick just the right color to blend aesthetically with your home. Our Mediterranean blends will give the old world Spanish tile look, coordinating beautifully with any exterior. Our wood shake colors are hard to distinguish from authentic wood shake roofing.

&

How do I maintain my roof?

There is little you have to do to maintain your Stonehenge Roof. Perhaps rinsing every few years if your area suffers from a lack of rain but other than that, your Stonehenge roof should remain maintenance free for many, many years to come.

&

How good is your Warranty?

This is where Stonehenge Roofing Products really shine! Our LIFETIME limited WARRANTY is the best in the industry! In so many words you are protected from manufacturing defects in both the steel itself AND the surface coating for as long as you own your home. If you transfer your warranty to the next successive owner, that owner is covered for 50 years from the date the roof was installed. The warranty is non-prorated for 50 years no matter how many times it is transferred. A real selling point for you, and real protection for them! This is a real win-win warranty for all involved. Read other warranties carefully and see what they really say .
