DECRA® Shingle XD® to be featured on Project Home “House United 2012”


(Corona, Calif.) - DECRA Roofing Systems, Inc., the leading manufacturer of stone coated steel roofing, is pleased to announce that DECRA Shingle XD® will be featured on the 2012 House United home at both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. DECRA® has been a NextGen participant since 2005 and is proud to be the official roofing sponsor for many NextGen project homes.


In a celebration of America, a home is being built in two halves and in two different cities, Tampa, FL and Charlotte, NC, during the National Republican and Democratic Conventions. The House United host and spokesperson, Ty Pennington, will greet volunteers at each event and at the final "reveal". The two halves of the home will then go to a lot in Charlotte, NC, be assembled, finished and then donated to a deserving veteran.


DECRA’s featured profile, Shingle XD in Natural Slate, has the rich bold appearance of heavy-weight architectural shingle at a fraction of the weight. DECRA Shingle XD is lightweight, durable and provides safety and security beyond other roofing products. Made of corrosion resistant, aluminum-zinc alloy coated steel with an acrylic bonded stone chip finish, the steel substrate used to make DECRA Roofing products contains upwards of 25% post-consumer recycled steel content, and is 100% recyclable at the end of its life. DECRA Shingle XD will add wonderful appeal to this home, complementing the traditional craftsman inspired look of the home for years to come.


DECRA Roofing Systems have been providing ageless beauty, superior performance and lasting durability for over 50 years. DECRA profiles are backed by a 50-year limited warranty, a 120 mph wind warranty, are Class 4 impact resistant, and steel is a non-combustible Class A rated material. Stone coated steel does not use asphalt in the manufacturing process, all water run-off meets World Health Organization standards and does not harm the groundwater – just one more reason to choose DECRA.

DECRA® Shake XD® featured on NextGen Roadshow Retrofit Home at the National Hardware Show - Las Vegas, NV

 

(Corona, Calif.) - DECRA Roofing Systems, Inc., the leading manufacturer of stone coated steel roofing panels, is pleased to announce that DECRA Shake XD® will be featured on the 2013 NextGen Energy Miser Home. Emulating the classic beauty of a heavy cut rustic wood shake, Shake XD was the perfect complement to the style of this project home. DECRA® has been a NextGen participant since 2005, and is proud to be the official roofing sponsor for this year’s project home.

 

 

The NextGen Energy Miser Home features companies and products that focus on the next generation of energy efficient upgrades, with years of savings for the homeowner down the road. This theme fits well with DECRA’s company position on creating sustainable roofing solutions that both help conserve resources, while saving the homeowner money in costly heating and cooling expenses.

 

DECRA’s featured profile, Shake XD, is lightweight, durable and provides safety and security beyond other roofing products. In past product installations, the temperature in the attic space and under the deck of the DECRA roof remained significantly cooler when compared to a white asphalt shingle roof, a traditional Energy Star® rated color. DECRA products allow for continuous airflow across the deck, creating less stress on the cooling system, and lowering energy consumption.

 

 

Beyond energy savings, the steel Shake XD panels are walkable and will not crack, split, curl or rot like traditional wood shakes. Made of corrosion resistant, aluminum-zinc alloy coated steel with an acrylic bonded stone chip finish, the steel substrate used to make DECRA Roofing products contains upwards of 25% post-consumer recycled steel content, and is 100% recyclable at the end of its life.

DECRA Shake XD® is put to the Test at IRE 2012

 

(Corona, Calif.) - DECRA Roofing Systems, Inc., the original stone coated steel roofing manufacturer with over 50 years of experience, announces a live, in-booth demonstration on the effects of attic heat on energy efficiency and how DECRA Shake XD can help to reduce consumption.

 

At the International Roofing Expo in Orlando, FL, DECRA will have an in-booth demonstration, highlighting the energy efficiency of stone coated steel metal roofing. DECRA’s “hotbox” will be on display in booth 501 to show how DECRA Shake XD stacks up against ENERGY STAR certified asphalt roofing.

 

During DECRA’s demo, white asphalt shingles are applied to one side of the deck and DECRA Shake XD in a non-ENERGY STAR color on the other side; both sides will have their own attic space built into the box, and individual heat sensors placed inside the attic space as well as under the deck of the roofing materials. The purpose of this demonstration is to show how a metal roof – stone coated steel in this instance – will perform better than a white asphalt shingle.

 

In past product demonstrations, the temperature in the attic and under the deck of the DECRA Shake XD roof remained significantly cooler than the white asphalt shingle roof. DECRA products allow for continuous airflow across the deck, creating less stress on the cooling system, and lower energy consumption.

 

With a focus on durability, sustainability and energy efficient design, DECRA stone coated steel panels offer a sustainable alternative to traditional roofing products. DECRA profiles are backed by a 50-year limited warranty, a 120 mph wind warranty, are Class 4 impact resistant and steel is a non-combustible, Class A rated material. Stone coated steel does not use asphalt in the manufacturing process, all water run-off meets World Health Organization standards and does not harm the groundwater – just one more reason to choose DECRA.

DECRA® to introduce and display new line of specialty accessory products at IRE 2012

DECRA® Ridge Vent & DECRA® Panel Vent

 

(Corona, Calif.) - DECRA Roofing Systems, Inc., the leading manufacturer of stone coated steel roofing panels, is pleased to announce the introduction of two new accessory products, DECRA Ridge Vent and DECRA Panel Vents. Both Vent options are specially designed for installation with all DECRA profiles, including DECRA Villa Tile, Shingle, and Shake XD®.

 

DECRA Ridge Vent helps to create a pathway of airspace between the roof ridge and the roof. This insures that the attic space is well-ventilated and moisture-free. Air trapped in an attic space could cause a drain on heating and cooling, and cause moisture damage. DECRA Ridge Vent installed along a roof’s ridgeline is an easy solution for creating air flow. When wind blows over the roof’s ridge with DECRA Ridge Vent, this creates negative pressure that draws out warmer air from the attic. DECRA Ridge Vent is also flexible, designed to work with all DECRA profiles, and is virtually maintenance-free.

 

DECRA Panel Vent provides an attractive alternative to standard box vents. Designed to fully integrate with all DECRA Roofing Systems, DECRA Panel Vent has the added benefit of protection against the elements.  Each DECRA Panel Vent is roughly equivalent to two standard box vents. The DECRA Tile Panel Vent provides 55 sq in of NFA (net free area), with all other Panel Vents providing 64 sq in of NFA. The DECRA Panel Vent install easily just like a DECRA Panel, with no flashing required. DECRA Panel Vent prevents insect infiltration and are weather resistant, protecting against snow and wind driven rain. DECRA Panel Vent is available in all six DECRA profiles and a variety of colors.

 

Some of these new accessory products will be on display the Product Showcase Pavilion at the show. To learn more about DECRA Ridge Vent and DECRA Panel Vent, visit DECRA’s Accessory Products page.
