The interlocking system
Gerard steel roof panels lock together to form a singular weathertight unit. Furthermore, the design eliminates any gaps where flying embers might enter.
Unlike long-run and heavy tile roofs, Gerard steel panel roofs are fastened at right angles to the wind’s lifting forces – holding on tight even in Category 3 hurricanes.
Up to seven protective coatings
A Gerard roof has up to seven different coatings applied for long lasting protection. The final layers are applied after the panels are formed to avoid surface cracking.
A lighter load
Where a concrete or clay tile roof could weigh 10 tonnes or more, a Gerard roof can weigh just one tenth of that, which is particularly reassuring in an earthquake.
With a crisp look to accentuate the roof pattern and details, Gerard’s smooth finish panels look like coloured steel but are much more durable.
Made with natural stone chips, our textured finish gives your roof a stronger, more substantial look, and added protection from the elements.
