ON TOP OF IT.
Earns you Homestar and Greenstar points
Gerard was the first roofing company in New Zealand to carry the internationally recognised Declare label, so you know our green credentials are solid. We were also the first to be accredited with ISO 14001 Environmental Management certification.
Easier to transport
The average houselot of traditional clay tiles requires an entire truck for transport. But with Gerard pressed steel roofing, you could fit 10 homes’ worth on the truck, using less energy (and therefore less carbon) to transport.
Requires less framing timber
A pressed steel roof requires much less framing support than concrete tiles – saving, on average, as much as $2000 worth of framing materials and $1000 in labour costs.
Recyclable again and again
Steel can be recycled indefinitely, without losing any of its qualities. So a retired Gerard roof doesn’t need to end up in landfill – it can simply be re-worked into another steel product.
More than just good products
At Gerard, it’s not just our products that are better for the environment. Our company, and our manufacturing methods are too. To us, sustainability means a pledge of continuous improvement, and it’s one we’ll be proudly upholding long term.
