Superior Strength And Better Looking Than Wood Or Concrete Shake Roofing Newly installed natural wood shake may look nice, but few owners want to be exposed to the chemical upkeep and serious fire hazard of a natural wood shake roof. Pressure and fire retardant treated wood shakes are an alternative, but they pose another set of problems. They are prone to excessive warping, buckling, discoloration and chemical runnoff. Lightweight painted aluminum shake roofing is an option, but the roofing is usually associated with unsightly denting and fading — a serious drawback. Gerard stone coated metal shake roofing is designed and manufactured to withstand Mother Nature’s harshest elements for a minimum of 50 years — guaranteed! Canyon Shake metal roofing is not affected by temperature fluctuations, does not absorb moisture like most conventional wood shake roofing, concrete shakes, and asphalt shingles that results in unsightly algae and mold, and accelerates their decay. For maximum beauty and durability, Canyon Shake metal roofing is coated under a fountain of high quality acrylic resins, poured-on natural chipped stone, and baked on clear UV acrylic coatings to create the most durable, practical and attractive shake-style roofing. And with its unique design elements, such as additional dimension and accenting created using darker and lighter colored stone chips to mimic realistic dimensional weathered wood shake, your Canyon Shake roof displays more dimension and color than traditional shake, and will continue to look beautiful over time, while requiring little or no maintenance and upkeep. Canyon Shake Installation Canyon Shake can be installed directly to the roof deck with screws or nails, or onto pre-fastened wooden battens. While the direct-to-deck installation method is the fastest, batten and counter-batten methods offer more flexibility, energy savings, and the ability to roof over existing wooden shake, asphalt shingles, standing seam, and more, on all 3:12 grade or greater roof slopes. All installation methods exceed the industry’s highest wind load uplift requirements. A Perfectly Finished Roof Our full line matching stone coated roofing components and finishing accessories seamlessly create the perfect finished look to your new Canyon Shake metal roof.

The worry-proof roof ® You won’t need to worry about the weight While a concrete tile roof on average home can weigh around 10 tonnes, the equivalent Gerard satin finish steel tile roof would weight just one tonne. You won’t need to worry about the wind Because Gerard interlocking tiles are fixed horizontally, a Gerard roof is significantly more secure in high winds than vertically fixed roofs such as concrete tiles or longrun iron. You won’t need to worry about the rain A properly installed Gerard steel tile roof is fully weatherproof, and unlike traditional concrete or clay tiles, Gerard tiles won’t crack and let in water. You won’t need to worry about sea spray The protective coatings on Gerard roof tiles include a special combination of aluminium and zinc, which provides up to eight times the corrosion resistance of alternative steel roofing products. You won’t need to worry about snow or ice Gerard roofs have been well proven in the cold. They are unaffected by show, frost or ice and because the tiles are made of steel, they can easily withstand heavy snow loadings.
