Roofing Slate, a 100% natural material that is able to protect you and your home from nature’s elements for your lifetime and beyond. Created by Mother Nature over hundreds of millions of years, roofing slate offers a unique combination of all natural material, extremely long service life and unparalleled beauty. Extracted from the ground and fabricated by people with centuries of slate heritage, and installed by craftsmen using methods passed down through generations, a slate roof imbues any project with a sense of quality, permanence and tradition. With an amazing array of natural colors, countless combinations of length/width/thickness, and a variety of installation styles, a slate roof can be customized to compliment almost any architectural style. Whether you are an architect writing a specification for an institutional project, a roofing contractor trying to match an existing slate roof for an addition, or a homeowner planning your dream home, let us help you make the most of what slate has to offer. With literally thousands of completed projects around the country and nearly 100 years of roofing slate experience in our office, we know slate. Put our experience and knowledge to work for you. Give us a call and let’s talk about how we can work together to make your project a success.
And, oh yes, slate roofs are heavy and expensive— putting them out of the reach
of most property owners. Until now.
The TruSlate® Premium Roofing System from GAF can make your dream of owning a genuine slate roof a reality.
The TruSlate® Premium Roofing System provides you:
• Real hand-split quarried slate (not a synthetic imitation)
• An affordable luxury (often comparable to the cost of cheap-looking imitations)
• Options for new construction or remodeling (because it typically eliminates the expensive structural modifications that traditionally installed slate requires)
• Potential to increase your home’s resale value (and enhance your home’s curb appeal)
• Two exclusive collections to please every taste and budget
How did we do it?
On a traditionally installed slate roof, half of each slate is never seen, because it’s tucked under the piece above it. We’ve replaced this wasted slate with a high-tech waterproofing material. With this ingenious design, the TruSlate® Premium Roofing System can be installed on almost any roof. It goes without saying—before you select your next roofing system, you owe it to yourself to consider the advantages of a genuine TruSlate® roof. In fact, why even consider a plastic imitation when you can get the real thing for about the same price—and for only a fraction of the cost of traditionally installed slate?
