The initial cost of
installing a Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof may be more than with other
roofing materials. However, the money a homeowner can save is significant,
because a Gerard roof will be the last roof you ever buy. A Gerard Stone
Coated Steel Roof adds to your home’s beauty and to its resale value.
Finally, insurance companies in many states will lower your homeowner’s
insurance premiums by as much as 35% due to the proven protection of a
Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof. The average life of a non-steel roof is
approximately 17 years. For example, asphalt, or “composition” shingles can
require re-roofing every 10 to 20 years or sooner! Compare that with a
Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof that includes a warranty that is good for the
lifetime of the owner (transferable).
Whether the setting is
historic, contemporary, or ancient – Mediterranean, Tropic, Desert, or even
Savannah, tile roofs provide distinction to highlight buildings and provide
memorable charm. JDuncanson can provide this look along with the proven and
popular benefits of metal roofing.
Our metal tile paint
finish includes reflective pigments for energy efficiency. Our proprietary
coating reflects radiant heat, keeping buildings naturally cooler.
Homeowners report energy savings up to 20% and more, thanks to reduced air
conditioning loads. This unique design also includes an integral air gap as
a thermal break, further helping to prevent warm weather heat transfer into
your home and attic.
Tile roofing can weigh
as much as 2000 pounds per 100 square feet. Even “low weight” tiles far
exceed 500 pounds. Fiberglass shingles weigh from 274 to 450 pounds. This
weight places strain on your home and poses significant cave-in threat in
the event of an interior fire. Metal tile roofs weigh less than 75 pounds
At JDuncanson, we know
that today’s homeowners want to make their homes reflect their personal
sense of style. They are also thinking about the long-term for their homes,
looking for building materials that will last, add value, and save energy.
Metal tile roofing does all of these things.
