Stone-Coated Tile Roofing
Beauty and Strength!
Beneath the rich look of Gerard Tile resides a heart of
steel. A strong, 26-gauge metal armor that has been
coated with Zincalume corrosion inhibitors, epoxy primers
and other protective layers to provide a permanent roof
product that will not crack, break or curl. A thick
coating of ceramically fired earth-stone granules are then
applied to give lasting beauty that tenaciously resist the
harmful effects of sun, wind, rain, hail and snow.
Known as stone-coated steel roofing, the resulting
technology has brought forth a product that wears like
steel, yet enhances the appearance of your home.
|Rich Look Of
Tile - Without The Weight!
At just one and a half pounds per square foot, Gerard Tile is up to
eight times lighter than clay or concrete tile, and four to five
times lighter than so-called "lightweight concrete" or
fiber-cement products. Compared to Gerard Tile, this represents
the weight of seven full-size cars added to your home's roof deck
and walls. In addition, the interlocking features of Gerard Tile
actually improve the structural rigidity of a home in case of an
earthquake. This same interlocking feature helps to make it
incredibly wind resistant, too! Gerard Metal Roofing warrantees
this product with a 120-mph wind warranty.
|The 120-mph wind warranty
offered by Gerard Metal Roofing exceeds even the most stringent
hurricane requirements in Florida. Thanks to its patented
interlocking design, Gerard Tile is able to solve wind uplift problems
that can cause many roofing materials to fly off in severe
