ABOUT THE BRAND
DECRA Metal Roofing products are manufactured at our state-of-the-art facility in California but our proprietary stone-coating manufacturing process has an illustrious history that dates back to World War II.
An emulsion coating derived from road tar and stone chips was first developed by the Decraspray Company in wartime England to camouflage the reflective corrugated metal roofs of important storage buildings and protect them from German air raids. After the war, the DECRA coating had bonded so well that it was virtually unremovable from the underlying corrugated iron. The coated metal roofs were so well-preserved that many began to see the incredible potential for creating a new standard of durable roofing products.
The original DECRA formula has been improved with an advanced acrylic base which has set the gold standard for durability and longevity.

Exquisitely replicating the vivid level of detail and dimension of Old-World Italian clay tiles, DECRA Villa Tile brings durable beauty and the luxurious appeal without the deficiencies of clay which cracks easily and is vulnerable to hail and storm debris impact. The traditional clay tile roof is a mandatory design element for enhancing the exotic cupolas and complex roof tiers prevalent in Mediterranean themes. DECRA Tile provides this essential scalloped-style aesthetic without the shortcomings of clay.
Ideal for designs relying on the look of heavy-cut wood shingles, DECRA Shingle XD provides the thick-cut edges and deep, distinctive shadow lines of architectural shingles at half the weight and with the strength and longevity that only stone-coated steel can offer. The rustic beauty and architectural detail of a thick, rustic, hand-split wood shake can endure for a lifetime with DECRA Shake XD. The durability and strength of stone-coated steel requires little to no maintenance and won't turn gray after a few months like traditional shake. The distinctive shadow lines of cedar shake provide a rich, thick, and heavy appearance that compliments any home. DECRA Shake provides this sophisticated design element without the ongoing maintenance or environmental shortcomings of conventional shake.
