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.

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.”

Economical, Attractive, and Lightweight

Stephanie Frizell”s 17-year old asphalt shingle roof needed to be replaced. She was delighted to find out that a Gerard Roof was so lightweight; it could be installed over her existing one and would protect her home. Pine trees surround her house. "I'd prefer to have a steel roof over my head when those guys get knocked over," she says. Stephanie selected the Gerard’s 'Weathered Slate' because of its color. She calls it "the perfect roof," and adds "I get to admire it twice a day when I go to the mailbox."

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.
