No, SGB's product profiles and attractive ceramic stone granules do not resemble the standing seam roofs of the commercial industry; they add value and curb appeal to any roofing installation.
Does granule size matter in the longevity of the product?
Deterioration of the coating takes place when there is exposed, uncovered basecoat; granule size- smaller or larger- does not ensure better coverage.
Do you use a non-oiled granule?
We use only 3M granules and they do have a small amount of mineral oil on them. However, the miniscule amount does not interfere with the adhesion of our basecoat, and does not affect water run-off.
Is water run-off from a metal roof potable?
Yes, the water run-off from our products meets the World Health Organization Standards testing. However, rainwater is variable across regions; atmospheric conditions should be considered in actual use. Water collected during the first or second rain fall after extended dry periods can be contaminated by dirt accumulation.
What is the best reason to buy a SGB Roofing System?
