BEAUTY AND STYLE OF THE MEDITERRANEAN
The traditional clay tile roof is a mandatory design element for enhancing the exotic cupolas and complex roof tiers prevalent in Mediterranean themes. DECRA Tile provides this essential scalloped-style aesthetic without the shortcomings of clay.
ABOUT DECRA TILE
Homes that require the classic look of Mediterranean tile face a challenging set of weather and maintenance issues. DECRA Tile provides the essential scalloped beauty of Mediterranean tile without the vulnerability of clay or concrete tiles.
Durable, lightweight and effortlessly elegant, DECRA Villa Tile outclasses and outlasts conventional tile and is backed by the strength of stone-coated steel to stand up against the elements.
DECRA SHINGLE XD
RICH APPEAL TO TRADITIONALLY-STYLED HOMES
Ideal for designs relying on the the look of heavy-cut wood shingles, DECRA Shingle XD provides the thick-cut edges and deep, distinctive shadow lines of architectural shingles at half the weight and with the strength and longevity that only stone-coated steel can offer.
ABOUT DECRA SHINGLE XD
While the lower initial cost of heavyweight shingles makes them popular, the need to replace them every 10-12 years nullifies the expense advantage. While shingles may be a cost-effective option for short-term, budget-constrained projects such as flipping an older, lower market house for profit, they are rarely an option for the elegant home which is intended to be the sustainable, low-maintenance, centerpiece of the estate for decades.
DECRA metal roofing shingles feature thick-cut edges to provide the same dimensionality of a heavy architectural shingle. The lightweight characteristic means that the need for a complete tear-off of the existing roof material isn't necessary in many cases. Protective layers and a unique DECRA interlocking system add shear strength and wind resistance.
RICHNESS OF CEDAR SHAKE
The distinctive shadow lines of cedar shake provide a rich, thick, and heavy appearance that compliments any home. DECRA Shake provides this sophisticated design element without the ongoing maintenance or environmental shortcomings of conventional shake.
ABOUT DECRA SHAKE
While wood shakes undoubtedly provide a distinctive beauty, it's a beauty that goes to grey quickly after a brief period of exposure to the elements. Cupping, splitting, and loosening around the fasteners make wood shakes prone to wind uplift and their impact and moisture resistance is minimal.
Wood shakes, even top-of-the-line cedar, are vulnerable to bacteria and fungus and are one of the most high maintenance roofing options.
DECRA Shake provides the same distinctive rich, thick, and heavy beauty of cedar shakes with durability to effortlessly and elegantly endure in all climate conditions.
