How Gerard’s ingenious pressed steel roofing works

A Gerard roof is made up of individual lightweight pressed steel panels secured using a unique fixing system that effectively locks them together to form a single structural unit. The result is a roof that’s stylish, copes with severe weather and lasts a very long time.

Textured or satin finish

Some profiles allow you to choose either a textured or satin finish on the surface of your roof. Both have their merits but a textured stone finish is inclined to look a little more substantial yet visually softer; satin finishes tend to produce a smoother, crisper look accentuating roof patterns and details more. 

Textured finishes

Natural stone chips are fused to using layers of acrylic resin and a resilient over-glaze. Some colours are entirely natural, intrinsic to the minerals themselves; others are mineral fragments with permanent ceramic coatings.


Textured finish benefits:

  • A stronger, more substantial look
  • Additional protection from the elements
  • Natural stone finish is almost entirely fade-free
  • Textured finishes last longer than paint finishes
  • Gerard textured finishes have longer warranty More details about Gerard’s coatings

Custom finishes

Custom finishes can be created for special projects by request.

A Gerard satin finish can be made to match any colour sample. We also have the ability to develop a custom textured finish – for example, we could work with stone that’s native to your location.

Satin finishes

Gerard’s satin finish looks just like coloured steel but the surface is much more durable.

Gerard’s satin finish is a 45-micron topcoat of ultra-tough polymer acrylic applied after the shape has been pressed into the steel. The process ensures a consistent covering without the danger of micro-cracks. (Coloured steel is painted before it is pressed; this process can cause micro-cracking in the surface.)


Satin finish advantages:

Less expensive than a textured finish

Smooth surface with clearer detail

Colouring after shaping prevents micro-cracks
