Are your Gerard Tiles normal coloured steel?
No, our product is better. They are manufactured from the same base material but Gerard Tiles have a coating twice as thick as normal coloured steel and have better fade resistance.
Are steel tiles cheaper than concrete?
Yes, in many cases – especially in two-storey or split level houses. The cost saving is in the structural support (timber) because Gerard Roofs are lightweight and they do not therefore need as must structural support.
Can we collect drinking water?
Yes, Gerard Roofs are safe to collect drinking water off. After being installed you need to wait for two good rainfalls before beginning collection.
