Slate Roofing is the most beautiful and durable roofing material known to man. For many centuries, it’s been the roofing material of choice for the world’s greatest buildings. In fact, some slate roofs have lasted for literally hundreds of years, enduring all of the ravages that Mother Nature could throw at them. And, oh yes, old-fashioned slate roofs are heavy— and expensive— putting them out of the reach of most property owners.

 

The GAF Slate™ system features:

  • Real hand-split quarried slate. (not a synthetic imitation)
  • An ingenious installation system. (that typically eliminates the expensive structural modifications that old-fashioned slate requires)
  • An affordable price. (often comparable to the cost of the cheap imitations)

How did we do it?

On an old-fashioned 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 Slate™ 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 Slate™ 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 old-fashioned slate?

GAF Slate is known industry wide for being the most beautiful and strong product. If you are wanting the best. You are here! Other products cost 30%-40% more due to the large amount of overlapping during installation.
