Providing Quality Metal Roofing and Metal Roofing Shingles For Over 40 years!
Versus "sooner or later?":- The average life of a non-steel roof is approximately 17 years. For example, asphalt, or “composition” shingles can require re-roofing every 10 to 20 years or sooner! Compare that with a Gerard Stone-Coated Metal Roof that includes a warranty that is good for the lifetime of the owner (transferable).
There’s more to the beautiful colors and designs of a Gerard Stone-Coated Metal Roof than meets the eye. For example, the lighter-colored roofs are designed to effectively reflect the sun’s heat and reduce the need to cool your home during the hot summer months. Our “dead air” buffer zone between your new Gerard metal roof and old roof also insulates against radiant heat entry buring the Summer months, and heat loss in the winter months. What a beautiful way to lower your energy bills! Additionally, this "dead-air" buffer zone is effective against Ice Damming.
Putting Our Warranty Where Our Mouth Is.
You don’t need to take anyone’s word for how long a Gerard Metal Roof will last. Our roofs come with impressive warranties including a 120 m.p.h. Wind Warranty, a 2.5 inch Hailstone Warranty and a Non-Prorated Warranty for the Lifetime of its Owner (transferable). Also be sure to talk to your Gerard-approved roofing installer about their workmanship warranty. Our warranty terms and conditions is available here for your review.

The Many Advantages of Gerard Metal Roofing
The benefits of metal roofs over traditional technologies have proven to be overwhelming. They are resistant to an array of extreme conditions, from ice damming and high-winds to fire and beyond. However, all metal roofs are not created in the same way. With so many metal roofing options, how can a homeowner be sure they are selecting the one that best suits their needs and desires? Lets explore the various metal roofing options to help you decide on the one that is best for your home and climate.
The many benefits associated with metal roofs include their lightweight, strong and durable material, energy efficiency, environmental benefits and beyond. One factor that deters people from metal roofs is a stereotypical industrial image associated with either sheet or standing seams and painted or bare metal. This stereotype does not hold true for Gerard's quality roofing materials, the benefits of which extend far beyond the practical and well into aesthetics. These roofing systems are far from traditional in appearance: they offer many colors and profiles, matching any home to perfection.
Gerard’s roofing systems also surpass standing seam in terms of design and functionality by offering more design and architecture alternatives than many people are aware. Stone-coated metal tiles, such as those from Gerard, enhance many kinds of home architectures. Furthermore, this technology offers installation diversity, including the advantage over traditional metal roofing of versatility mounting and waterproofing accessories, from water heaters and chillers to walkways and more.Likewise, since traditional standing seam materials are mounted against the roof deck, heat transfers occur readily, making this roofing product low in energy efficiency. Gerard’s stone-coated tile systems, on the other hand, are energy-efficient to the extent that they can reduce utility bills by up to 40%.
Another feature of standing seam roofing that Gerard roofing outshines other is quality: standing seam is typically thin and rich in carbon content, increasing its stiffness, and limiting its ability to fit customly to your home. Moreover, not only is standing seam limited in terms of finishing trims, but it's also susceptible to rusting. In addition, standing seam materials are much more difficult to repair than Gerard roofing systems. The high carbon content of standing seam can also leave their fastenings vulnerable to water penetration. Metal roofs that have been applied directly to roof decks without proper precautions can rust from moisture on the under-layment. This is not the case with Gerard’s 26-gauge Galvalume® tiles, which are stamped for dimension and offer a much wider range of installation techniques.
