The roof of any building is a big investment, so making the right choice is essential. Of all the things to consider, two things stand out – the performance of the roof, and who you’re buying it from, and you need to be able to trust both of these things.
Gerard® roofs have been proven over 60 years to perform. Having been installed around the world in every type of climate, Gerard® particularly outperforms other types of roofing in sub-Saharan Africa.
Manufactured from high grade Alu-Zinc steel and natural stone chips with advanced coating technology, Gerard® roofs continue to perform for generations where other roofs fail. Our market beating fifty year warranty covers Gerard® against rust and corrosion, chip loss and colour change – all things that effect other roof types.
The image above-left demonstrates how risky it can be to choose a roof that’s “like” Gerard®. This photograph was taken within the first year after installation and shows the colour of the roof fading. The image above-right is Genuine Gerard®, which is only available from our authorised Distributors. Gerard® Roofs never change colour and remain a consistent vibrant colour throughout its life.

So how do you know your roof is Genuine Gerard®? A lot of roof traders that sell stone coated roof tiles buy fake ones from China and pass them off as Gerard®. These tiles, however, will not perform to our exacting standards. There are several ways of identifying Genuine Gerard® Distributors. The first is to contact us and we’ll pass your details on to our exclusive Distributor in your location and give you their details. Genuine Gerard® Distributors also advertise quite extensively, so you may see our billboards or tv ads. Lastly, all Genuine Gerard® roof tiles have the Gerard® logo printed on the back of the tile. Ask to see a tile to check that the person you’re dealing with is genuine.
