Enjoy the beauty of wood shake without the maintenance !
Gerard Stone Coated Steel, ‘Canyon Shake’ metal roof tile profile offers the best of all worlds for customers who want the look of wood shake with the strength and security of steel metal roofing. Unlike wood shake, our premium stone coated steel roofing tiles will never need the costly maintenance, upkeep and replacement that natural wood shake roofs require.
Natural wood shake is not water proof, and needs to be maintained/treated for mold and fungus growth, and relies heavily on a vapor barrier underlayment to protect your roof deck. Our stone coated steel tiles are waterproof, and are categorized as a “dry under-deck” roofing system, keeping your roof deck dry year round under the most testing of conditions.
With Gerard’s stone coated tiles you won’t need to treat for mold and fungus, and over the decades, your shake style roof will continue to look beautiful while delivering the best protection, as the day it was installed! Natural wood shake is also highly flammable, and combined with petroleum based waterproofing under-layments that are used, poses a very high fire risk to the home owner. Gerard Canyon Shake stone coated steel roofing is fire resistant, and backed by a “Class-A” fire rating thanks to their inflammable nature and interlocking structure.
Owners of our stone coated steel roofing products will also enjoy insurance premium reductions thanks to the fact that our metal roof tiles will never burn or blow off as do conventional/natural wood shake tiles. Today, many areas across the US no longer allow natural wood shake roofs, and it is no surprise that Gerard’s stone coated Canyon Shake metal roof tiles have become the preferred alternative.
