Pride in Your Roof

In south Florida, a roof lasts maybe ten to twelve years, but between the climate, pressure-washing and fungus, Rex Allen's roof was severely deteriorated. Asking around, he found that an asphalt roof would cost $7000, and carried no guarantees that it would be around by the time he retired. So instead, he went with a Gerard Steel Stone Coated Steel Roof. Allen is so confident in the longevity of his stone-coated steel roof that he states, "It'll last longer than I will, I don’t have fungus and mildew problems anymore."

Cheaper Roofs, No Way

Even though we were price conscious, we didn’t want to end up with a cheap roof that wasn’t going to last. We looked at cheaper roofs, asphalt was one that we looked at. But as far as enhancing the property, no way. After we saw the pros and cons of all the different products available, the condominium board had an easy decision to make. We are really happy that we made a decision that pleased everyone. This is one where we haven’t had even one complaint.

Florida Lifetime Roof

Florida will test any roofing material about as severely as it can be tested. Typical shingle roofs don’t even last their warranty period here. More and more, the fact that a metal roof system will pretty much last a lifetime justifies the cost. Because of the lightweight material and the maintenance-free aspect of the roofing, Gerard is the clear choice to me.
