"Do judge a roof by it's cover"
August 5, 2015
Jewett Roofing has been a St. Louis roofing contractor and served the metro-east region for over 35 years. We have built our business by specializing in low slope commercial and industrial roofing projects. For nearly 20 years we have recommended and installed Duro-Last, “The World’s Best Roof”, on hundreds of low slope roofs.
In 2014, as a response to our customers need for a steep slope roof solution that would complement the quality and warranty of a Duro-Last roof, we began offering the DECRA Stone Coated Metal Shingle System. DECRA combines striking visual aesthetics with top not warranty coverage. DECRA products align well with Jewett Roofing’s commitment to offer products that we believe in, from manufacturers that will stand behind them.
As an introduction to the DECRA we have highlighted some of the Frequently Asked Questions that we often hear from our customers.
Q: Is a DECRA Roofing System more expensive?
A: DECRA roof offers more value for your money. With a minimum 50 year life expectancy, you would have to purchase and install 2-1/2 shingle roofs for the cost of one DECRA roof. Like most products you buy, “you get what you pay for.” A DECRA roof offers more for your money. Itís no bargain to put two roofs on your house because the first one was “cheaper” and subsequently failed. A DECRA roof can last a lifetime. DECRA is also quite durable because the aluminum-zinc alloy coated steel enhances the superior weathering and corrosion resistance of each roofing panel.
Q: Is a DECRA Roofing System warranted?
A: The best in the industry. DECRA Roofing Systems carry a Limited Lifetime Warranty including 120 mph winds, hail penetration for any size hail and manufacturing defects – including excessive granule loss. In addition, material and labor are covered for the first 20 years after that time, material is covered the remaining warranty period.
Q: Will a DECRA Roof withstand a Hail Storm?
A: DECRA has a Class 4 Hail Rating – the highest rating offered by UL.
