The fire resistant solution from Gerard Roofing - A safe roofing solution must be extremely fire resistant to prevent hot embers from external fires spreading. The ideal roof will be lightweight yet strong and securely interlocked to prevent it collapsing if an interior fire becomes established.
The overall cost of a Gerard pressed steel roof is similar to the cost of a long-run iron roof and usually less expensive than a concrete tile roof. Gerard roofs are likely to be less expensive than any other type of roof because it won’t require special materials or fastenings to cope with extreme conditions.
Gerard roof tiles undergo strict testing, part of which is for the quality of run-off water from our roofs. In tests, Gerard roof tiles are proven not to add anything to the water that falls onto the roof, and in fact exceed the standards set by the World Health Organisation for drinking water. In short, the water that falls onto the roof is exactly the same as is collected by your rainwater guttering system. However, before use, we recommend that the water should be filtered as leaves and twigs etc. can make their way into your tanks. If used for domestic use, the water should probably be boiled first.
