Gerard carries over 50 years of knowledge in constructing metal roofing tiles. Gerard metal roofing tiles are durable and visually appealing.
Chiefly, the tile is made from steel that is layered with an aluminum-zinc veneer which makes the tile anti-corrosive. A protective covering of acrylic resin applied on both sides holds the basecoat and bonds the decorative layer chip to the tile. It also protects the tiles from UV rays, dampness, and gathering mold and has more than 30 years of exposure life. In truth, Gerard metal roofing tiles have eight times more corrosion resistance than older steel roofing systems.
The basecoat also contains algaecide, which aids in maintaining the development of algae and lichens on the roof and is valuable in rainwater harvesting when the roof water is collected and stored for human consumption and other uses. The decorative chip is accessible in customized colors and has an attractive glossy finish.
