Gerard Roofing Technologies produces lightweight stone coated steel roof tiles, shakes & shingles designed for residential, commercial and light Industrial roofs.
Gerard Metal Tile & Shake can stand up to the worst weather mother nature can dish out while remaining quiet, light, great looking, and lasting a life time.
The Gerard roof system creates an air space which helps to insulate the roof from extreme heat or cold. Additional insulators can be applied in this space for even greater energy savings.
Gerard tile and shake products have undergone the UL 2218 test standard and emerged with the industry’s best rating: “Class 4 hail resistant roof covering.” This rating is backed by a lifetime limited warranty, featuring hail protection up to 2.5 inches. Many insurance companies give discounts up to 38% to homeowners in hail-prone areas with Gerard roofs.
At just 1.4 pounds per square foot, Gerard roof panels are up to eight times lighter than clay or concrete tile, and four to five times lighter than “lightweight” concrete or fiber-cement products.
The interlocking features of Gerard Tile actually improve the rigidity of a home in case of anearthquake, and also makes the roof incredibly wind resistant. Gerard backs this up with a 120mph Wind Warranty.
A Gerard roof is a strong, 26-gauge metal armor that has been coated with corrosion inhibitors, resin coatings and other protective layers to provide a permanent roof product that will not crack, break or curl.
Known as stone-coated steel roofing, Gerard applies a thick coating of ceramically-fired earth-stone to give lasting beauty that resists the harmful effects of wind, rain, hail and snow.
Gerard has taken stone-coated steel technology and formed it to emulate the look of hand-split shake, providing all the aesthetic benefits of a wood shake roof without the fire hazard. Gerard Shake will not absorb water either, an important feature in cold climates. Ice damming is also resisted because of the interlocking design.
Ratings based on comparison with Gerard as determined from manufacturer’s specifications, independant testing laboratories and published industry studies/statistics.
