Shake Off The Negatives Of Natural Wood Roofing
Canyon Shake provides the durability you'd expect from a metal roof and comes with all the ratings and features such as a Class A Fire Rating, 120 MPH wind coverage, lifetime warranty, and goes beyond the Class 4 Hail rating with a 2 1/2" Hail stone coverage.
Canyon Shake offers the same premium looks while eliminating maintenance costs. Speaking of cost, in most areas all Gerard stone-coated metal roofing systems qualify for insurance discounts, because metal does not burn. For this reason, Gerard's Canyon Shake roofing has become a preferred alternative in areas prohibiting natural shake roofs.
Superior Strength And Better Looking Than Wood Or Concrete Shake Roofing
Newly installed natural wood shakes do look great, but few owners want to brave the chemical upkeep and serious fire hazard of a natural wood shake roof. Pressure and fire retardant treated wood shakes are an alternative, but they are prone to excessive warping, buckling, discoloration, and chemical run-off. Lightweight painted aluminum shake roofing is an option but is usually associated with unsightly denting and fading.
Gerard stone coated metal shake roofing is designed and manufactured to withstand the harshest of elements for a minimum of 50 years, guaranteed! Additional dimension and accenting is created on our shake roofing using darker and lighter colored stone chips to mimic realistic dimensional weathered wood shake. Not only will your Canyon Shake roof display more dimension and color than traditional shake, it will continue to look beautiful over time while requiring the least amount of maintenance and upkeep.
Canyon Shake metal roofing is not affected by daily temperature fluctuations, and does not absorb moisture. Most conventional roofing materials like wood shakes, concrete shakes, and asphalt shingles do absorb moisture which results in unsightly algae and mold, and accelerates their decay. For maximum beauty and durability Canyon Shake metal roofing is coated under a fountain of high quality acrylic resins, poured-on natural chipped stone, and baked on clear UV acrylic coatings to create the most durable, practical and attractive shake style roofing.
Canyon Shake Installation
Canyon Shake can be installed directly to the roof deck with screws or nails, or onto pre-fastened wooden battens. While the direct-to-deck installation method is the fastest, batten and counter-batten methods offer more flexibility, energy savings, and the ability to roof over existing wooden shake, asphalt shingles, standing seam, and more, on all 3:12 grade or greater roof slopes. Our full line matching stone coated roofing components and finishing accessories seamlessly create the perfect finished look.
The Best Protection Against Snow and Ice
If you live in a area that is prone to snow and ice, there is no better roof than a Gerard stone coated Canyon Shake metal roof. Each year, homeowners across America spend millions of dollars repairing damage caused by ‘Ice Damming’. With a Gerard Canyon Shake roof, ice damming is virtually eliminated because of the air layer between the metal roof panels and the roof deck. This highly insulating characteristic not only saves energy, but also causes the snow on your roof to melt much faster than on conventional roofs, greatly reducing the possibility of water freezing at the edges of your roof.
