Slate is the most durable and beautiful roofing material available. In fact, there are slate roofs that have lasted for hundreds of years! Slate roofs, however, can be more costly and harder to install than other materials. Fortunately, GAF, the leading roofing manufacturer in the U.S., has found a way to offer the amazing features of slate at only a fraction of the cost. Tittle Brothers Construction shows the features and benefits of GAF’s TruSlate® roofing in Detroit.
Features of TruSlate® Roofing
The TruSlate Premier System features genuine, hand-split quarried slate that can be installed on any type of roof because of its light weight. On a regular slate roof, half of each slate is not visible. In place of the hidden slate, GAF used a high-tech waterproofing material, boosting its resistance to the elements while reducing the weight of the roof.
TruSlate® makes for a great Detroit roofing system. Here’s why.
- It offers lasting beauty. Slate beautifully ages over time, even if exposed to different weather patterns. TruSlate is available in several colors, such as charcoal, autumn dusk and onyx black, allowing you to choose the best match for your home.
- It is highly durable. Some slate roofs have been around for centuries already. Installing our TruSlate roofing can provide your home with excellent protection over the decades.
- It keeps your roofing system from leaking. TruSlate features an UnderBlock™ UV & Moisture Barrier made from a high-density polyethylene (HDPE). This boosts your roof’s resistance to weathering, freezing and cracking.
