Slate is perhaps the closest to perfection among roofing materials. It’s immune to the elements, allowing it to literally last a lifetime. Furthermore, its unmistakable charm lends stunning beauty to any home. Since it’s sustainable, it minimizes the amount of construction waste that ends up in landfills.
However, slate’s steep price tag puts it beyond the reach of most homeowners. Its installation also becomes more laborious when you switch from a lighter material, further increasing the overall outlay. GAF’s TruSlate® has the answer, though. What makes this premium product the superior substitute to traditional slate? A1 Siding and Roofing, the premier roofing contractor, discusses further:
It’s Not a Synthetic Imitation
TruSlate is made of genuine metamorphic rock, not plastic. Coming from North America’s finest quarries, TruSlate is authentic, hand-split, S1-grade slate. Unlike traditional ones, half of it is made from an innovative waterproofing material. Since that portion is tucked under the piece above it, its ingenious design wastes no real slate.
It’s an Affordable Luxury
TruSlate delivers the impressive weatherproofing performance of traditional slate for about the same price of a typical plastic imitation. Moreover, it has a lightweight design to eliminate the need for time-consuming structural modifications, which usually increase labor costs.
Unlike other residential roofing materials, it offers a healthy balance between durability and affordability. Available in a variety of dramatic colors, you can now give your home a boost in elegance without breaking the bank.
It’s Part of Something Bigger
TruSlate is not just a material but a system. It comes with premium components to reinforce the exceptional properties of genuine slate. It has several protective layers to protect your roof against UV rays and moisture. In addition, it comes with advanced ridge vents to keep your attic cool and minimize the risk of heat buildup and condensation.
