GERARD ROOFS "THE WORRY-PROOF ROOF"
For many people, choosing a roof is primarily about style, and in this respect, a modern, lightweight Gerard roof offers a myriad of different options to suit architecture of all kinds.
But equally important is peace of mind. You want to feel confident that your roof will continue to protect your home and its precious contents even under the most extreme conditions imaginable.
Gerard roofs have been thoroughly proven over time right throughout New Zealand and in over 120 countries around the world.
You won’t need to worry about the weight
While a concrete tile roof on an average home can weigh around 10 tonnes, the equivalent Gerard satin finish steel tile roof would weigh just one tonne.
You won’t need to worry about the wind
Because Gerard interlocking tiles are fixed horizontally, a Gerard roof is significantly more secure in high winds than vertically fixed roofs such as concrete tiles or longrun iron.
You won’t need to worry about the rain
A properly installed Gerard steel tile roof is fully weatherproof, and unlike traditional concrete or clay tiles, Gerard tiles won’t crack and let in water.
You won’t need to worry about sea spray
The protective coatings on Gerard roof tiles include a special combination of aluminium and zinc, which provides up to eight times the corrosion resistance of alternative steel roofing products.
You won’t need to worry about snow or ice
Gerard roofs have been well proven in the cold. They are unaffected by snow, frost or ice and because the tiles are made of steel, they can easily withstand heavy snow loadings.
