The Red Antiquities Building (RAB) would like to thank DECRA® Stone Coated Steel Roofing Systems and their regional distributor, Copp’s Buildall. DECRA has donated 25 squares of DECRA Shake XD®, to restore our roof. 

DECRA Shake XD, will give the RAB roof the look of hand-split shake, without the worry or maintenance that traditional wood shake requires.  This roofing product will offer protection from freeze/thaw conditions, high winds, and hail damage. DECRA’s products are lightweight and will not cause strain or damage to existing roof beams, retaining the historical components original to the structure when it was first built.  Shake XD® has a unique hidden fastening system and is installed direct to the deck and requires no special tools. Shake XD® provides the durability and longevity of stone coated steel and is backed by a 50-year warranty.  The panels will not crack, split, curl or break like traditional wood shakes.

We’re in the process of installing the Shake XD now, and it looks fantastic!
