Slate roofing has remained a luxury out of reach for most homeowners, until now. The TruSlate® Premium Roofing System from GAF has made this material more affordable and accessible for anyone who wants to enjoy the benefits of slate. While there are many alternatives, such as asphalt shingles designed to look like slate, nothing offers the guaranteed protection of slate, and TruSlate is 100% genuine, hand-split, S1-grade slate.
From the Nation’s Best Quarries
As a premium GAF product, TruSlate only comes from American and Canadian quarries. This ensures excellent quality that will last for generations. These quarries produce some of the world’s best textures and qualities, and GAF has improved the performance further by achieving the ASTM C406 S1-Rating, ensuring longevity, durability and overall integrity of the product.
Excellent Material, Affordable Cost
What makes TruSlate a smart option for roof repair or replacement? The answer is quite simple. During installation of traditional slate roofing materials, the shingles are placed to overlap each other. The overlap is known as wasted slate, resulting in heavier and costlier roofing systems. TruSlate has eliminated the wasted slate from these gaps, so consumers can enjoy the savings.
In addition, our installers also spend much less time on installation thanks to the unique hanger system that makes placement a breeze. This means TruSlate can be installed for less than half the cost of traditional slate roofing materials.
Perfect for Any Home
If you’re wondering whether your home can support TruSlate as a roof replacement, then you’ll be happy to know that because of the lightweight installation, this product is compatible with all standard roofs. At only 550 pounds per roofing square, TruSlate Premium Roofing System is the lightest and most durable material available today.
