A decra roof is the original stone-coated metal roof made of stone-coated steel. Neither traditional roofing materials nor imitation metal roofing products can match the strength of decra’s.
Decra roofing products offer the following benefits that make them preferable to many builders. They are made of fire-resistant aluminum-zinc coated steel thus preventing external fires from spreading.
They have a durability of about 25 years and are also cost-effective since they are made of materials that require minimum maintenance. They are invulnerable since they can withstand natural disasters such as earthquakes.
The cost of roofing materials in Kenya varies depending on the quality and type of the product.
The price of corrugated iron sheets is as low as sh300 for the thinnest grade with high quality pre-painted sheets going for up to sh700 per square meter. Installing clay roofing tiles costs around sh600 and concrete roofing tiles costs around Sh800 per square meter. Copper felt tiles and transparent insulated roofs are some of the most expensive roofing materials in the country amounting to sh5,000 per square meter.
Decra roofing in Kenya will cost you upwards of sh2,000 per square meter for all profiles. This is quite high compared to Korean roofing tiles which are close to the decra roof that will cost between sh1,400 to 1,600 depending on the profile. Its innovative design and consistency in the manufacturing process have earned the roofing system a reputation for excellence in the competitive global market.
