Decra Metal Roof Steel Shingles Shingle Plus by Decra
Decra steel shingles provide the best protection, safety and durability in roofing materials. Some handmade metal roofs from the 1800s still exist today at over 160 years old. Metal roofs are considered among the most sustainable roofing products available.
Decra steel shingles are manfactured of 26 gauge corrugated steel for strength and walkability. They are durable, low maintenance and lighter than conventional shingle roofs and are made even stronger, more durable and resistant to heat and impact by a granular stone coating. An aluminium zinc layer is underneath the corrugated steel ensuring the roof resists corrosion and rust.

Watch the video below to see how two Decra roofs were instrumental in stopping a community fire from continuing to engulf and destroy a line of homes. Firefighters even used the stone coated roof as a safe place to stand while spraying the tops of adjacent burning homes:
Structure and Installation
The structure and installation of a batten system underneath, helps the steel tile roof to resist high winds. Decra Shingle Plus is tested up to 200 mph, and warrantied to withstand damage from 120 mph winds. Decra shingles were designed from ‘typhoon tiles’, developed to resist extremely high winds in hurricane zones.
Decra steel tiles are guaranteed not to leak for 50 years, won’t gather water in freeze and thaw conditions. They are tested by Underwriter Laboratories for Impact Resistance, with a Class 4 Strength Rating.
Recycled steel is used extensively in the production of new steel roofing materials. Not only does each steel roof contain a portion of recycled metal roofs, it can also be completely recycled at the end of its useful life.
Metal roofs can last for over 100 years and are 100% recyclable should they ever be replaced or removed. Steel roofs help keep hundreds of tons of used non-metal roofing material like shingles and toxic tar out of our landfills each year.
Steel is inherently fire and heat resistant and the stone coating further enhances the safety and protection provided by this roof.
Decra’s stone coated steel tile metal roofs carry a 50 Year Transferable Warranty. If you sell the building any time within 50 years of installing the metal roof, the warranty transfers to the new owner. This roof is definitely one of the best ways to improve the value, quality, saleability and safety of your home and buildings.
