GAF’s TruSlate®: The Luxury You Can Afford

Slate is one of the most coveted Roofing materials. While other roofing materials attempt to mimic slate’s unique appearance, they can never quite emulate its genuine charm. In addition to unparalleled beauty, slate also offers unmatched durability: it can last up to 150 years or more with proper care, making it a lifetime roofing solution. The only downside is the steep price tag, which makes it an impractical option for many homeowners.

To enable homeowners to experience the superior benefits of slate without breaking the bank, GAF created the TruSlate® Premium Roofing System. Read on as Eldridge Roofing and Restoration discusses what makes it a smart alternative:

Innovative Design

Half of the traditional slate is hidden because it’s tucked under the piece above it. GAF replaced this wasted slate with an advanced waterproofing material. By reducing weight, TruSlate eliminates the need for structural modifications to the roofing system. This translates into lower material and labor costs, making it an affordable luxury.

While TruSlate’s design is a bit altered, its thickness and quality are the same as traditional slate. It won’t warp or curl throughout its service life, which means it will offer uncompromising protection for decades. It’s also easier to repair and replace than other materials because it’s installed with hangers instead of nails.

Beautiful Color Selections

TruSlate Roofing delivers the unrivaled charm of authentic, hand-split quarried slate. It comes in an array of colors to match your home’s architectural character. Over time, it will fade, creating a rich blend of colors that enhances the natural beauty of your roof. Charcoal, for instance, features a gray slate that comprises light and dark tones. Once it starts to weather, it will reveal bronze and buff tones.

Superior Warranty

GAF’s Ultimate Pledge™ warranty provides lifetime coverage on manufacturing defects and 20-year coverage on workmanship errors. This gives you the assurance that your TruSlate roofing will deliver decades of protection, comfort, and elegance to your home.
