Proudly made in New Zealand, Gerard Roofs started in Auckland in 1957 manufacturing pressed steel roofing. It is a lightweight roof that is easy to install and perfect for challenging weather and changing environmental conditions. Since its inception, Gerard steel roofs have been sold all around the world. International demand has been so strong that the product is now sold in over 127 countries around the world. Over the years additional manufacturing plants have been established in Europe and the USA. Eighty per cent of the products made in New Zealand are now exported all around the world.
Gerard is truly a New Zealand success story, the business was sold by Fletcher Building in 2018 to the IKO Group in Canada, a global roofing company. This change in ownership has not only meant Gerard is now the world’s largest pressed steel roofing manufacturer but has also given New Zealand access to the global R&D team in Europe. This is exciting as Gerard will be bringing to the market a number of exciting new products in the next 18 months.
Gerard Steel Roofs are an environmentally-friendly choice. It’s a lightweight roof which means that its transportation footprint is smaller and it’s made from steel which is endlessly recyclable.
Below is a list of Gerard Roofs products that have the Environmental Choice licence:
- EC-57-16 Pre-painted and Resin Coated Steel Products (Licence No. 5719170)
- Corona Shake Satin Roof Tiles in all standard colours
Products offered to the market include an architectural design range, the original classic range, and a full range of roof trims and accessories to deliver a complete roof solution.
Combined with comprehensive warranties for peace of mind for the homeowner, it is no wonder that Gerard has been used on Kiwi homes for 62 years.
