Slate Rock Metal Roof in Lima Ohio

Slate Rock Oxford Metal Roof installation begins in Lima Ohio!  This home addition is being capped in our newest metal roof, Slate Rock Oxford.  The homeowner chose to dress their home in the Slate Gray color.

Slate Rock Oxford is Schroer & Sons’ newest metal roof profile.  It features the fine beauty of slate rock without the dangerous weight and high cost. Slate Rock Oxford is coated in four layers of PVDF from Valspar which provides your home with lasting beauty that will not fade, break, or crack. In addition, your Slate Rock Oxford roof is coated with a reflective paint finish which keeps the roof surface cooler.  This reduces cooling expenses during the hot summer months.

Slate Rock Oxford is manufactured with 95% recycled, 0.024″ aluminum.  This means two things.  It means that it will not rust. Aluminum is specially chosen because we want your Schroer & Sons roof to be the last roof you’ll ever have to buy.  It also means that your roof is lightweight.  Slate Rock Oxford weights only 40lbs per 100 square feet.  This is compared to true slate rock which can weight between 650-4000 lbs per 100 square feet.  A lightweight roof reduces stress on your home’s structure.  A lightweight roof means your home will last longer.

Like our other styles, Slate Rock Oxford is designed with a 4-way interlocking panel. Every panel locks into place, secured above, below, and on both sides.  Each panel is secured to the roof deck with special aluminum ring shank nails every 12 inches.  These nails are most effective in ensuring your Slate Rock Oxford roof will withstand the worst of weather conditions.
