Gerard® rooftiles make up one of the lightest roofs available. A Gerard® roof is up to 7 times lighter than a clay or concrete roof. Less weight on the roof means less stress on the sub-structure.
In many cases substantial savings can be made as there is no need for expensive reinforcing of the sub-structure. Being light in weight, Gerard® Roofing Tiles are easily handled, and installation is completed in a short time.
