For Immediate Release
Stone-coated steel roofing is proving to be more useful than just covering a house. One recent application specified stone-coated steel panels to be used as siding. The owner of a landmark commercial building in Los Angeles wanted to close off a series of thirdstory windows adjacent to the building’s brick façade. A designer-consultant initially considered standing-seam metal, but the roofing contractor suggested stone-coated steel shingles because of their variety of color options and “a shingle effect similar to the brick that would blend in with the roof structure.” The results were pleasing to the building owner, designer-consultant and roofing contractor. Today, the Devon Storage building just off the Hollywood (101) Freeway in downtown Los Angeles beams with white stone-coated steel roofing panels protecting its sides.
