Brand Focus: Features and Benefits of Gerard® Metal Roofing

By Stacy Mellete

There are many manufacturers of stone-coated metal roofing systems out there, but Gerard® is regarded for the quality, reliability and superior warranty coverage of their products.

Let Affordable Roofing Systems, the top Gerard Certified roofing contractor in Tampa FL, discuss the features and benefits of this premium roofing system for your consideration:

Durable like No Other

Gerard stone-coated metal roofing will withstand the harshest of elements for at least 50 years – guaranteed. It may well be the last roof you’ll ever buy. It has 3/16 galvalume coated steel, baked-on base coats, and the best UV rated acrylic finishes. The result is metal roofing in Tampa FL, that will never rot, crack, warp or break.

Amazing Warranty Coverage

  • 120 MPH Wind Resistance
  • 2.5 Inch Hail Stone Warranty
  • Best Protection Against Snow and Ice
  • Class A Fire Rating
  • Transferable Non-Prorated Warranty for the Lifetime of its Owner


Weighing in at only 1.5 Ibs per square foot, Gerard stone-coated metal roofs are among the safest roofing systems in seismic regions. In fact, they are up to 10 times lighter concrete or clay roofing, which makes them the better alternative.

Energy Efficient

Gerard stone coated metal roofs are ENERGY STAR® labeled. Their reflective qualities can lower the roof surface temperature by up to 100°F, which in turn limits thermal transfer into the interior of your home.

It also comes with a “dead air” buffer zone that insulates against heat loss in winter months. Enjoy lower energy bills with your new metal roofing contractor in Tampa FL.

Uniquely Beautiful

Whatever the style, color, or finish of your home, there is most likely a Gerard metal roof that will match. Choose from 18 standard colors and 4 great profiles (Classic Tile, Canyon Shake, Barrel Vault, and Metal Shingles), to give your home’s curb appeal a refreshing boost.
