Buying a roof is an important decision. You need to have all the important, relevant information before making a purchase. 

Which is the best roof for climate change?


That is why we, at GERARD, continue to help you with some tips and tricks for making the right decision. All the advice is based on our more than 60 years of experience in creating one of the best roofing solutions in the world.

Do you need peak protection from weather extremes?

We recommend that you do not ignore the wider environment where your house is situated. Driving rain, high winds and hailstorms are becoming more frequent weather conditions these days and a roof must be able to prove that it’s made for all seasons.

Is your house located in an area which is exposed to weather extremes such as strong winds, driving rain or hailstorms? Roofing materials and installation techniques play a crucial role when your house needs special protection. Clay or concrete tiles can be blown off or broken by high winds and hail.

Although there are exceptions (like IKO shingles), other cheap, poor quality bituminous shingles can be severely damaged, even just by strong UV radiation within a relatively short time.

But GERARD’s Roofing System is designed to withstand just about anything that climate change can throw at your home. Why?

This is not a marketing message, it is an exceptional product and achievement.

A view from a GERARD roof after the hailstorm in Črnomelj

On 8th June 2018 a hailstorm with enormous hailstones 10 cm in diameter hit the southeast region of Slovenia. Most devastated was the municipality of Črnomelj, where the roofs of over 1700 private homes and non-residential buildings were destroyed. GERARD roofs proved to be hail resistant. In spite of the extreme size of the hailstones, the GERARD roofs remained waterproof; the roof surface was slightly deformed, but not penetrated. This was not the case with other types of roofs.

You can trust a GERARD roof even in extreme hailstorms.


  • High winds and heavy rain vs GERARD

The real strength of our roofs in severe weather conditions is our superior horizontal fastening method. High wind is the most common cause of damaged roofs and wet homes. According to our tests and customer testimonials, our unique installation technique with fastening at 8 points per tile can protect your home from a hurricane of up to 160 km/h and keep your home dry.
