Gerard's Non-Batten Classic Tile TM is a modified version of our Classic metal tile which can be installed directly onto the roof deck (without the need of battens). Classic tile is our original stone coated steel roofing tile designed to deliver performance and results far and above typical roofing industry expectations, repeatedly and reliably, under the most testing of weather conditions. Gerard Classic Tile offers a uniquely different and very attractive appearance once fitted, and each Classic Tile boasts 7 valleys to channel the water, with corresponding ridges and high points designed for watertight fastening. This is the true thoroughbred of metal tile designed and engineered to take full advantage of metal characteristics as a roofing material. A Gerard stone coated Non-Batten Classic TileTM metal roof takes steel roofing to new heights in reliability, performance and beauty.
