Tech Tuesday: Standard Batten Installation

What sets Gerard apart from other stone coated metal roofing products? Our preferred installation method.

How does it work? It's simple! Two by two battens are first placed on the roof deck or on top of existing shingle roofing with a batten spacer tool. 

Gerard's batten installation method is the most common method of installation because it comes with many benefits. The benefits of this method over the direct-to-deck method is increased air space for energy savings; ability to roof over existing shingles, and roofing integrity due to the added material to fasten the new roofing to. 

Gerard metal roofing offers the most durable, adaptable and beautiful roofing with a complete range of finishing parts. As with any roofing product, Gerard stone coated metal roofing is only as good as the installation. Gerard offers an extensive hands-on training program, with installation guides as well as installation videos and DVD’s (in English and Spanish) for installing our metal roofing.

This installation method can be done with Canyon Shake, Barrel Vault, and Tile.
