Roof for a new home How much will it cost?
Most people are pleasantly surprised when they’re told the price of a Gerard pressed steel roof. When all potential costs are taken into account, Gerard delivers world-proven style and performance at no extra cost.
All inclusive price
With a Gerard roof, everything is included in the quoted price, including purlins and roofing underlay. With long-run roofing, these items may not be included in the quoted price – be sure to ask.
Reduced overall building costs
Installing a Gerard Roofs pressed steel roof instead of a heavyweight concrete or clay tile roof can help to reduce overall building costs. fewer trusses, rafters and bracing elements are required with a Gerard roof.
No added costs for coastal areas
Gerard roofs don’t require any special anti-corrosion treatment if your home is near the sea. With a long-run roof, the building code demands either a special marine rated coating (which costs extra) or a more expensive grade of steel.
