Traditionally installed slate has found its match in GAF’s TruSlate®. This innovative product is not a synthetic imitation; it’s made from North America’s authentic S1-grade, hand-split quarried slate, which is why it has a luxurious look, delivers unparalleled longevity and ages gracefully.
So, why is investing in TruSlate better than owning a genuine slate roof? There are many reasons, but these three features are at the top of the list of any slate-savvy residential roofer, including Above It All Roofing and Construction.
TruSlate ensures no slate goes to waste. On traditionally installed slate roofs, the half of each slate is tucked under the piece above it. GAF replaced that generally unused portion with a high-tech, waterproofing material. Cleverly eliminating the part of the slate nobody ever sees, the TruSlate Premium Roofing System is lighter than the traditional slate roof without sacrificing performance.
Unique Hanger System
Be it for a new residential roof construction or a re-roofing project, TruSlate is simple and easy to install. It uses a unique TruGrip® batten-and-hanger system to make its installation easier than its contemporaries. Actually, even roofers without previous experience with slate roofing could lay it down with little fuss.
All components in the TruSlate Premium Roofing System are uncomplicated to install. Although you still can’t forgo the service of a professional roofing contractor, its installation wouldn’t take forever to complete.
Post-Installation Slate Rearrangement Option
If you suddenly change your mind with TruSlate’s appearance after roof replacement, its individual slates can be rearranged with ease. This is something you can’t do with a traditional slate roof. Knowing that your roof’s installed look doesn’t have to be final is comforting should you wish to tweak your home’s facade in the future.
The advantages of the TruSlate Premium Roofing System over a traditionally installed slate roof are undeniable.
