The longest roof warranty you can get


50 yearS warranty for your new steel roof


A roof must last long. Very long.
A roof is a high-cost investment as well therefore you don’t want to spend money on roof more than once in your lifetime. It would be a waste of money, right?
There are so many other pricey things you want or need to replace after some years, for example a car. But not a roof.
There are other things, which you want to pay for regularly, for example holidays. But not for a roof.
You want to spend money on a roof only once.
You expect a new roof to deliver solutions to these needs of yours: 
·      it should protect my house in my whole life
·      it should look good on my house in my whole life
·      it should need virtually no maintenance
If your new roof fails to deliver only on one of these, you waste your money on it. And not little money. Now you’re asking rightly:
Can I buy a roof, which meets all those needs of mine?
We know, you can get all those benefits under one roof!
Warranties of many other roofbrands protect your roof only for a few decades, we guarantee you those benefits for 50 years!

How can GERARD guarantee you an excellent roof for 50 years?


With a GERARD roof you get all these expectations met for at least 50 years, guaranteed! What is the reason that we are so confident?

1 1st reason: Experience. Long enough

Having been in the roofing business for more than 60 years, we know that we can! We’ve seen our roofs deliver our promises for more than 6 decades. Not all producers can back up their warranty with such a long experinence.

2 2nd reason: Protection. It is tested and trusted. 

Even if climate change hits your home with weather extremes. How?
Every single GERARD roof tile is fastened with nails on 8 different spots
One more secret: unlike many other rooftypes GERARD tiles are fastened horizontally. Why is it important? High wind blowing over the roof cause a difference in air pressure between the inside and outside of the roof. The stronger the wind, the higher the pressure differential. This results in ‘wind uplift’ that’s lethal for roofs with vertical fastening because the fastener can simply pull out. Concrete and clay tiles, for example, rely on the weight of each tile to hold them down and they can be fitted with vertical fastening at the back of the tile. Longrun metal roofs are are fitted only with vertical fasteners.  With our unique horizontal fastening method the wind and its pressure cannot lift our tiles, even a hurricane as strong as 160 km / hour. We know because we tested it in our legendary Hurricane Test.

3 3rd reason: Beauty is natural at GERARD. 

Gorgeous volcanic stones are covering each GERARD tiles. You cannot see the difference between a clay/concrete roof or GERARD, they are that beautiful!

No worries, the stone chips are bonded to the tile with our very own GERARD SUPER GLUE, which our experts call humbly GERARD Basecoat. It bonds the stone granules to the surface of the tile for the life of the tile. What about UV rays? Volcanic stones can cope with that and their colours will not fade. 

4 4th reason: Virtually no maintenance is needed. 

Have you ever seen people replacing clay or concrete tiles after a severe summer storm? Can you imagine what a headache that is if the house is tall? Not to mention the costs. You don’t need to worry about this problem with GERARD! With our Extreme Fastening Technology each tile is fastened horizontally with 8 nails
You may be thinking about aesthetic changes over the years like green growth. In certain locations all rooftypes (clay, concrete, metal, bitumen) are exposed to conditions that accelerate or inhibit organic growth. We tell you honestly, GERARD is no exeption either. But we developed a solution for this problem. If your area is specially prone to organic growth, e.g. due to humidity or the proximity of trees, you can get rid of it with GERARD RoofGuard. A cleaning substance specifically developed for roofs by GERARD so that you don’t have to worry about this either!
Unfortunately not every roof meets your expectations and GERARD’s standards.
You may not know but traditional roofing solutions can let you down in surprising ways.  Watch out before you lose on a roof purchase.
