The worry-proof roof

For many people, choosing a roof is primarily about style, and in this respect, a modern, lightweight Gerard roof offers a myriad of different options to suit architecture of all kinds.

Gerard roofs have been thoroughly proven over time right throughout New Zealand and in over 120 countries around the world.

You won’t need to worry about the weight

home-elephant.jpgWhile a concrete tile roof on an average home can weigh around 10 tonnes, the equivalent Gerard satin finish steel tile roof would weigh just one tonne.

You won’t need to worry about the wind

home-chicken.jpgBecause Gerard interlocking tiles are fixed horizontally, a Gerard roof is significantly more secure in high winds than vertically fixed roofs such as concrete tiles or longrun iron.

You won’t need to worry about the rain

You won’t need to worry about sea spray

home-gull.jpgThe protective coatings on Gerard roof tiles include a special combination of aluminium and zinc, which provides up to eight times the corrosion resistance of alternative steel roofing products.

You won’t need to worry about snow or ice

home-snowman.jpgGerard roofs have been well proven in the cold. They are unaffected by snow, frost or ice and because the tiles are made of steel, they can easily withstand heavy snow loadings.

Gerard on Grand Designs TV home

A spectacular roofline on a Balinese inspired pole home generated huge interest after it featured on Australia's top rating Grand Designs TV show.

Seen by an estimated 1.8 million viewers, the hour-long episode followed the construction of a pavilion-style "treehouse" with a Gerard Corona Shake roof at Trinity Beach near Cairns in North Queensland.

The tornado-proof roof

When a large tornado touched down on Auckland’s north shore in May last year, Mike and Sharon Tomoana’s Gerard roof was seriously tested. It passed with flying colours; however neighbouring houses with concrete tile roofs weren’t so lucky. Prised loose by 200kph winds, the concrete tiles became flying missiles
of destruction.
