Withstanding the Forces of "Tornado Alley"
Doug Setters and his family live in Indiana, where his asphalt shingles were constantly being blown of by strong winds. When Doug saw how the shingles on a Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof interlocked with each other, he knew they would be able to withstand what nature threw at his home. "Now I won't have to replace the roof every year," says Setters "Now I've got peace of mind and a great-looking roof. I will definitely recommend a Gerard Roof to anyone.”
1999 Atlanta Fire - Denied Access
Bob Gerson is certain that his Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof saved his historic home. He told every TV crew and newspaper reporter the same thing. The four-alarm fire started in #34 and burned it to the ground, spread to #38 (next door - the house where PRINCE OF TIDES was written) and seriously damaged it before fire crews brought the fire under control. Their actions and his Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof were able to stop the spread. Despite the intense heat from the fire next door, just feet from Gerson's home, his house suffered little damage. The fire tried to enter through the soffit under the eaves, a common entry point for fire. The Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof denied the fire any access. Apart from scorched paint and some burn marks under the eaves, the house was undamaged. Two subsequent rainstorms proved Mr. Gerson's written assertion that the Gerard Roof had saved his home. No water entered the attic.
Hail: Safe and Not Even a Mark
It was an incredible noise, like the world was coming to an end. I huddled with my dogs while the hailstorm tore through Plano. The whole house was pounded by hail the size of quarters. Outside, trees and flowers were destroyed, but we didn't worry about the house at all. We had a Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof. It kept me and the dogs safe—and the hail didn't leave so much as a mark on it.
Hail Damaged Car, Roof Untouched
We had golf ball-sized hail that did some serious damage to my car, but our roof was untouched. I wish my Mercedes had a roof as hail resistant as that Gerard roof.
