Gerard Granite Ridge Shingle

Tech Tuesday: Shingle Products Roof Pitch

Did you know a Gerard roof cannot be installed on just any roof?

Here's the reason why: If the slope or pitch is too low, the roofing system will leak... And no homeowner wants a leaky roof!

In order to install a Gerard Granite Ridge Shingle Roof properly, it may not be installed on roof slopes less than 18.5 degrees or a pitch less than 4:12. All other Gerard products may not be installed on a roof pitch less than 3:12. 

Installing product on any slope below the prescribed pitch will void the Lifetime Limited Warranty provided by Gerard Roof Products.
