Gerard TEXTURES, FINISHES & TRIMS

The finish you choose for your Gerard pressed steel roof will make a major contribution to the appearance of your home.  Your choice will be influenced by the architectural style of your home and your intended colour scheme.  Budget is also a factor - textured finishes come at higher price, however they add more to the market value of your home.

 

SATIN FINISH

Gerard's satin finish is superior to the finish on coloursteel.  Coloursteel is painted with a powder-coat or epoxy resin before it is shaped, which means the surface can experience micro-cracking where it has been stretched.  Gerard's Satin finish tiles are spray painted with a 45-micro topcoat of ultra-tough polymer acrylic after the shape has been pressed into the steel, ensuring a consistent covering with no micro-cracks.

Benefits

  • Less expensive than a textured finish
  • Low-light reflection gives a smoother appearance, allowing you to appreciate the detail of the tile surface.
  • Painting after shaping prevents micro-cracks
  • Gerard's satin finish has 15 year warranty

 

Textured Finish

Natural stone chips are fused to the metal tile with a base of acrylic resin and a resilient over glaze.  Some colours are completely natural; others are permanently coloured using ceramic technology.

BENEFITS

  • The roof has a stronger, more substantial look
  • Tiles have additional (three-layer) protection from the elements.
  • Textured finishes last longer than pain finishes
  • Gerard Textured stone finishes have  a 20 year warranty

TRIMS

Trim is an essential roofing element, for performance as well as appearance.  Gerard manufactures trim components that are fully-compatible with their range of tiles, shingles and shakes.

Roof trim creates a weather-proof seal at roof junctions.  It comes in three shapes - Box, Barrel and Angle.

This chart shows which trim shapes work best with each type of roofing tile.
