Style Meets Performance
PINE-CREST Shake metal roof tiles offer the look, dimension & colors of wood shake, with the added benefit of long lasting performance. Various installation methods allow you to roof over existing wood, metal or shingle roofing.
PACIFIC Tile resembles traditional old-world small barrel roof tile, and some traditional cement roofing tile. It looks great on both traditional and contemporary architecture.
Barrel Vault roof tile resembles high profile “S” style concrete or terracotta tile roofing, without any of the downside. It will never or absorb moisture, is more energy efficient, weighs a fraction of the weight, and is available in 8 colors.
GRANITE-RIDGE metal roof tiles look like dimensional shingles, but will never twist, tear, blow off, burden our landfills, or catch fire! Metal roofing is much stronger than conventional and architectural asphalt roofing shingles.
Acquisition by Boral
Over the years Gerard has seen some changes, introducing new designs, application methods and procedures and yes even changing hands regarding ownership.
On May 8, 2017 Boral completed its acquisition of Headwaters Incorporated, the parent company of Gerard. Since then Boral has been carefully rebranding Gerard, along with Metro another similar line, as Boral Steel seeking to better position the manufacturer in serving the specialty residential and commercial roofing market.
“To ensure that we seamlessly realize the benefits of this strategic acquisition for all of our stakeholders, teams from Boral and Headwaters are coming together to implement integration plans that leverage the talents and expertise of both companies,” said Mike Kane, Boral CEO & Managing Director.
Boral USA and Headwaters combined to form a new division named Boral North America – a $1.8 billion revenue business – which is to be headquartered in Atlanta, the location of Boral’s current U.S. headquarters.
