Far More Durable Than Cement Or Clay Spanish Roof Tiles
Clay tile roof life expectancy is far lower than a Gerard stone coated metal roof, which designed and built to withstand the harshest of elements for a minimum of 50 years guaranteed! Our metal roofing is made from 3/16 galvalume coated steel - the most workable and durable metal roofing material available.
Clay and concrete roof tiles are very heavy and are prone to cracking, and absorbing moisture which further increases their weight, and their tendency to grow unsightly algae, fungus and mold which has to be cleaned. Our dimensionally stamped metal tiles do not absorb moisture and are generously coated with a poured-on acrylic resins embedded with poured-on natural stone chips, and baked on acrylic UV coatings to ad further protection, and to keep looking like newly natural Spanish tile or Roman tile, while delivering the most durable and practical roofing protection.
Unlike traditional S-shaped Spanish tile, Gerard's Barrel Vault metal roof tiles will never crack or break, and will save you a lot of money and time in future cleaning, repairs, and replacement costs! Unlike natural Spanish and concrete barrel tile, Gerard Barrel Vault does not absorb moisture, will stand the test of time and always looking great.
10x Lighter, 20x More Compact, And 100x Stronger Than Traditional Barrel and Spanish Tile Roofing
When compared with conventional clay and cement barrel Spanish tiles, our roofing is exponentially lighter, more compact and stronger! Our stone coated steel metal roofing is not only the toughest, but also one of the most lightweight roofing materials available, and weighs only 1.5 pounds per square foot. This translates into savings on shipping costs, because 2 pallets of Gerard roofing material is equivalent to more than 20 pallets of conventional clay or cement barrel tile.
In seismic regions, Gerard is the safest roofing and a great alternative to traditional concrete and clay Spanish tiles which can easily weigh over 20 pounds per square foot. In typical barrel roof tile construction, the difference between using Gerard's lightweight stone coated metal roofing over concrete or clay roofing products results in almost 10 times less weight pushing down on your homes structure.
In new building construction Gerard roofing weight savings can translate into significant building cost savings. See what architects say about how Gerard metal roofs can save money on new building construction!
