TOLEDO, Ohio /eNewsChannels/ — NEWS: Residential Renovations, a leading exterior remodeler and certified metal roofer in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan, is pleased to announce DECRA’s Shake XD, a stone coated steel roofing panel, will be the next metal roof showcased in their energy efficient roof line-up.

DECRA Roofing Systems, Inc. is the leading manufacturer of stone coated steel roofing panels and has been providing ageless beauty, superior performance and lasting durability since 1957.

All DECRA panels are easy to use with rain catchment systems and solar panel systems. DECRA products are supported by a 50-year limited warranty, a 120 mph wind warranty, and all steel profiles are non-combustible Class A Fire rated with Class 4 Impact Resistance to UL 2218.

The DECRA Shingle XD is pressure formed aluminum-zinc alloy coated steel with an acrylic bonded stone chip finish. The stone coating resists fading and UV penetration. The stone coated metal shingle has the rich bold appearance of a heavy weight architectural shingle at a fraction of the weight.

DECRA Shingle XD provides greater dimensionality and a robust appearance with Its thick cut edges and deep distinctive shadow lines. This profile adds wonderful appeal to traditionally styled homes and is ideal to those homeowners who prefer the look of heavy-cut wood shingles.

Scott Pratt, Sr., owner of Residential Renovations, explained, “Currently we offer nine other roofing manufacturers in both metal and asphalt shingles. We pride ourselves on price, choice and quality when it comes to exterior remodeling. We are very excited to add the DECRA stone coated steel roofing solution to our already extensive metal roof offerings.”

Residential Renovations is certified in DECRA’s stone coated steel roofing installation technique and offers extended workmanship warrantees from seven to fifty years in length in addition to DECRA’s warranty.

“It is our extensive experience, knowledge, and training that sets us apart from other roofers and remodelers when it comes to metal roofs, however the many benefits of a metal roof are often times overlooked when the cost of asphalt shingles is considered. Some of the many benefits of a metal roof include up to 40 percent in energy savings, 30 percent less in insurance costs, 100 percent recyclable, increased resale value, 100 percent fire resistant, mold and mildew resistant and handles extreme weather conditions including: 160 mph winds, heavy snow loads and hail storms,” added Mr. Pratt.
