Gerard Roofing Technologies has been manufacturing Stone Coated Roofing Systems since 1971.

What materials are used in making Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roofing Systems?
Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof Systems use steel panels that are protected from the elements by corrosion resistant Galvalume. The Gerard basecoat uses proprietary resins, which have been developed over many years to promote lifetime performance in all climates. The stone chips that Gerard uses in its Stone Coating are non-oiled natural granite granules that improve adherence to the basecoat while enhancing the appearance of Gerard panels.

Is a Gerard Roof Heavy?
At only 1.4 lbs. per square foot, a Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof is truly “lightweight”. In fact even lighter than most high-grade asphalt roof shingles. Concrete and clay roofs can weigh up to 15 lbs per square foot!

Will a Gerard Roof make my home hotter in the summer?
No. Many Gerard Roof owners have experienced utility savings after installation. A property vented Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof System moves air between the steel panel and the underlying deck. Heated air dissipates through the ridgeline while cooler air is drawn through eave vents

Is a Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof noisy?
No! The dead air space between Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof Panels and the roof decking combined with the stone coating dampens exterior noise even in a rainstorm.

Are Homeowner Insurance discounts available if I install a Gerard Roof?
Yes. Many Homeowner Insurance Providers now offer up to 30% discounts on insurance premiums. Check with your insurance provider.

Does an existing roof need to be torn off to install a Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof?
Not necessarily. Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roofs can be installed over existing wood shingle, shake or composition roofs when possible. Your local contractor will check local building codes.

Can a Gerard roof be walked on?
Yes. Gerard Stone Coated Roofing Systems can be walked on without breaking or cracking, unlike concrete and clay roofs. Care should be taken not to walk on the raised rib portions of the panel.

Does heat and cold make a Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof contract and expand?
Yes. But, unlike heavy concrete roofing, the lightweight Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roofing System is designed to protect your home against contraction damage.
