4 Benefits You Can Enjoy from Gerard® Metal Roofing

By Stacy Mellete

While tile and asphalt is the go-to roofing choices in Florida, there is another material that’s fast gaining traction among homeowners: metal. This exceptional option offers a number of benefits that can further enhance your home’s weather protection and comfort. Among the many providers of this choice, Gerard® metal roofing is at the top of the list.

Affordable Roofing Systems, your expert in metal roof installation Tampa FL, shares four advantages you can enjoy from this great option.

  1. Exceptional Durability. Gerard metal roofing can withstand the harshest weather conditions. Unlike standard asphalt shingles, it doesn’t crack, curl, or buckle. It also offers great resistance against rot and fungal growth that usually visits traditional wood shakes. Gerard metal roofing carries a Class A fire rating, the highest protection available in the industry.
  • Since it disperses electricity safely through the home structure, this metal roof is a safer option over wood shakes during thunderstorms. In addition, our metal roofing from Gerard can take on impact damage and blow-offs from hail and high winds. It ensures lasting performance especially with good maintenance.
  1. Cost-Effective. When you work with the premier metal roofing company in Tampa FL, for this excellent choice, you’ll benefit from considerable savings. It’s easier to install, as Gerard metal roofing is 10 times lighter than other metal roof systems. This means you won’t need to go for an additional support structure, saving you from further expenses.
  1. Improved Energy Efficiency. You can improve your home’s comfort levels and benefit from significant energy savings by choosing Gerard metal roofing. This is possible through inherent reflective properties that can reduce solar heat gain. This makes it suitable for the hot and humid Florida climate. This option is ENERY STAR®-approved, so you can enjoy a thermally comfortable indoor environment, while reducing the load in your cooling system.
  2. Superior Warranties. Gerard metal roofs come with a 120mph Wind Warranty for greater ease of mind against high wind speeds. They also offer a 2.5 inch Hailstone Warranty, plus a 50-year, non-prorated, transferable lifetime warranty. In addition, as your trusted metal roofing contractor in Tampa Florida, Affordable Roofing Systems has our own workmanship guarantee to ensure expert and timely installation. All of these serve to add another layer of protection to your investment.
