Sophisticated Style with the Strength of Steel: DECRA Roofs Blend Eye-Catching Elegance and Heavy-Duty Toughness
With its interlocking panels and heavy-duty steel construction, a DECRA roof is built to last. Not only does DECRA offer a 50 year warranty, but also has a life expectancy of 150+ years with practically zero maintenance required.”
What is DECRA Stone Coated Metal Roofing?
Simply put, a DECRA roof is a metal roof that’s coated with ceramic stone granules. This gives it the sleek, sophisticated look of expensive roofing materials, with a lot of dimension, for a fraction of the cost. DECRA roofing offers a similar, but classier, look to asphalt shingles or a large cedar shake look.
But unlike flimsy shingles that crack and fade, the heavy-duty steel base of a DECRA roof can withstand just about anything mother nature throws your way. Rain, snow, hail, gusty winds – no problem for a DECRA roof!
The stone coating process also gives the roof some nice bonuses like better energy efficiency (keeps your house cooler in summer) and sound insulation (no noisy rain!).
DECRA is a steel shingle with a galvanized aluminum (galvalum) coating (vs a painted coating). This gives the shingles rust corrosion resistance. It’s 4X more corrosive resistant than painted steel. The front of the shingle is coated with an acrylic bonding agent and then the ceramic stone granules are applied.
Unparalleled Performance You Can Trust – DECRA Metal Roofs provide proven peace of mind that your home and family are protected:
DECRA Roofs Are Built Like a Tank
With its interlocking panels and heavy-duty steel construction, a DECRA roof is built to last. Not only does DECRA offer a 50 year warranty, but also has a life expectancy of 150+ years with practically zero maintenance required. Compare that to 15-20 years for most asphalt roofs, in WI, which may require repairs every few years.
A DECRA roof can easily withstand high winds, heavy rain, hail, falling branches – you name it. The possibility of any type of storm damage to your home is greatly reduced!
Stay Cool and Save Money With A Stone Coated Metal Roof
Those ceramic stone granules give DECRA roofs a higher solar reflectance compared to other roof types. This means the roof absorbs less heat, and dissipates it more quickly, from sunlight and keeps your attic and home cooler in the summer.
Homeowners with DECRA roofs see energy bill savings of up to 25% during hot summer months!
Classy Curb Appeal – Have The Nicest Roof in Wisconsin
DECRA Stone Coated Metal Roofing offers the elegance and style of premium roofing materials, without the hefty price tag. Rosenow Customs’ DECRA Roofing products bring a refined and superior aesthetic compared to traditional asphalt shingles or cedar shakes.

Our roofing ensures lasting vibrancy and a fresh appearance for years, outperforming asphalt shingles that quickly lose their color and appeal.
Dependable Defense Against Flames: DECRA Fireproof Protection
DECRA’s stone-coated metal roofing, with its non-combustible steel construction, provides superior fire protection for your home. The robust design features interlocking panels that form a tight barrier against ember penetration, a vulnerability often found in other roofing materials. This design significantly reduces the risk compared to traditional asphalt shingles, which are oil-based and more susceptible to combustion.
Enjoy the assurance that your DECRA roof enhances the safety of your home, offering a dependable defense against wildfires or neighborhood fireworks displays.
Kind to the Planet: DECRA Roofs’ Sustainable Life Cycle
DECRA roofs are about as green as it gets! The steel is made from over 80% recycled materials and is fully recyclable at the end of its life.
This means less waste ends up in landfills. And because a DECRA roof lasts so long, fewer resources are consumed over time versus replacing a shorter-lived roof every couple decades. The full life of a DECRA roof is approximately 8-10 asphalt roof lifespans!

Can you install a DECRA roof over existing shingles?
