Allmet stone-coated metal roofing systems deliver the best of both worlds, providing excellent protection against the elements and handsome good looks.

The stone-coated Allmet metal roofing system provides an ideal blend of attributes for roofing contractors, builders, architects and homeowners. On one hand, Allmet delivers the rugged durability and strength of metal roofing. On the other, it serves up the handsome good looks of such profiles as wood shake, genuine slate and shingle roofing. And Allmet roofing continues looking great year after year.

An Allmet metal roof may cost a bit more to install, but the expense will be more than offset by lower repair and replacement cost. Compared to concrete or clay roofing, Allmet stone-coated metal roofing is lightweight, and among the safest roofs in seismic regions. A reliable energy-saver, it’s installed on a batten or counter-batten grid. This creates a substantial air space to reduce heat transfer in hot summer months, and stabilizes the roofing temperature in winter, which greatly reduces ice damming.

Made from 26-gauge steel, Allmet roofing systems won’t rot, crack, warp or break.  The system offers tremendous protection against snow, ice, winds and hail. Allmet stone-coated metal roofing is also non-combustible, earning a coveted Class A Fire Rating.

Allmet is offered in an array of styles that attractively complement most any home. They start with Granite Ridge stone-coated metal shingles, a lightweight, tough and economical roofing backed by a limited lifetime warranty. This new generation shingle is not only 67 percent lighter weight than heavyweight asphalt laminates, and also features outstanding appearance from the street and bona fide curb appeal. What’s more, the raised seam joints on Granite Ridge ensure enhanced protection against the elements.

Allmet Continental Tile gives roofs the appearance of high-profile concrete or clay tiles, with none of the traditional problems, including heavy weight. The stone-coated metal tile composition helps eliminate costly repair and replacement problems, saves energy and adds to home value, while maintaining its good looks. There’s also a strong limited lifetime warranty, too.

The best of nature is captured in Allmet Wood Shake, melding the natural beauty of wood shake with the tough, secure strength of metal roofing, and providing great economies to boot. Natural shake has never offered the freedom from high upkeep and replacement costs our Wood Shake promises. And it doesn’t have Allmet Wood Shake’s assurance it won’t catch fire or blow off in high winds. With many areas prohibiting natural wood shake roofs, the Allmet stone-coated metal Wood Shake has become the safer, logical alternative.

Allmet Shadowline gives you the fine aesthetics and dimension of natural slate, and features four Energy Star-rated colors among its 19 color blends. These metal roofing systems provide terrific efficiency and value, and also avoid the cracking, breaking, moisture retention and other problems of genuine state.

Allmet stone-coated metal roofing’s limited lifetime transferable warranty covers up to 120 mile per hour winds, 2.5-inch hail stones and fire. In short, Allmet stone-coated metal roofing systems are the only roofing systems you’ll ever need.
