Color Chart: Stone Coated Finishes

Stone coated steel roof profiles use a unique blend of earth stone granules which are bonded and sealed to pre-formed steel panels to provide the natural hues and beauty found in other traditional forms of roofing.  Profiles, their coordinating trims, flashings and accessories are available in a broad spectrum of solid and variegated colors to compliment the exterior of every building.

Natural Finishes

Vicwest steel roofing profiles are also available in natural unpainted finishes to give your building a traditional look. GalvalumeTM is an aluminum-zinc coated steel that gives a smooth, silvery metallic spangled look and offers two times the corrosion resistance than bare galvanized steel.  Galvalume PlusTM is an acrylic resin coated steel that provides even superior corrosion resistance and will maintain it's "brand new" appearance longer. Galvanized is a zinc-coated steel core which will weather over time to a darkened appearance.

GalvalumeTM is a trademark of ArcelorMittal Dofasco.

Metallic Finishes

Vicwest's Metallic Series will give your roof that opulent, high-end look in a long lasting, no maintenance painted finish that has none of the drawbacks or financial costs associated with natural metals such as copper. And, unlike natural metals, your roof will retain its "new" metallic appearance for decades. This four coat Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF: 70% Kynar 500 or Hylar 5000 Fluropolymers resins) paint system comes in a broad color range with custom coloring available. 

All metallic finishes are non-stocked and additional charges and delivery times will apply. Should you require a metallic finish, please contact your Vicwest sales representative or ask at the Pro or Contractor desk at your local building supply center.
