Lightning

Decra Roofing systems are made from sheet steel coated with stone chips.

The least affected roofs were the stone-coated steel roofing materials as made by Decra Roofing. Scores of homes with these roofs had no structural or roof damage even though they were located in areas of significant destruction with neighbouring houses showing serious damage.

Hail

Decra Roofing systems have been proven under all possible and extreme weather conditions around the world including large hailstones and heavy snow loads.

The stone surface of all Decra Roofing's roof tiles is a potential life saver. Its rough texture holds snow in place until it melts naturally and harmlessly. Dangerous snow sliding is therefore eliminated without the need for expensive and unsightly snow stops.
