When deciding on a roofing material for your home, there are countless products on the market to choose from. At CC&L Roofing Company we have experience installing all types of roofing products, from traditional asphalt shingles to concrete and clay tiles, cedar shakes, slate, and many types of metal roofing. The most popular style of metal roofing that we install is metal tile. Metal tile is a versatile product and is a great choice for any home. There are numerous metal tile manufacturers, but the one we have installed most often is Gerard by Metals USA. Gerard metal tile is a stone coated steel product, where the base steel is coated with zinc-aluminum, then acrylic film, acrylic resin basecoat, stone chip, and acrylic overglaze. This stone chip coating is what makes metal tile so much more appealing than traditional sheet metal type roofing. The metal tile comes in panels that are then installed over a wood batten system. All vents and pipe flashings on the roof are stone coated to match the metal tile, which makes for a beautiful finished product. Gerard metal tile has excellent wind and hail warranties, and at 1.4 lbs per square foot it is lighter to install than even asphalt shingles. Being this lightweight is a great advantage and makes this product suitable for any structure. The metal tile comes in various profiles and many different colors. You can get Gerard metal tile in profiles such as classic tile, higher profile barrel vault tile, shake pattern, or even shingle pattern. All of this and Gerard metal tile also comes with a limited lifetime warranty and is made with over 30% recycled steel.
