FIRE – The interlocking panels and innovative fastening system reduce the threat of wind-blown embers reaching the roof deck below. Gerard comes with a UL 790 Class “A” Fire rating (highest rating in the industry).

EARTHQUAKE – Superior features reduce the threat of roof collapse. Traditionally, earthquakes have not been a concern for Oklahoma. However, there have recently been increases in the earthquake occurrences in our state. When the McMullen Company surveyed the 1994 Northridge, California earthquake, they found only minor damage to 1% of homes protected by stone-coated steel roofing. In contrast, more than 50% of the homes with concrete and clay roofs had significant damage.
WEATHERING – The stone-coated steel panels will not fade, split, crack, break, curl, warp or absorb water. The stone granules are UV-reflective and provide protection against the elements.

RESALE – According to the Residential Cost Handbook, a home’s value increases $1.35/sq. ft. with a metal roof vs. a wood shake or asphalt composition roof.
