Of all the high-quality roofing materials installed by Up and Above Contractors, slate is one of our most unique offerings. Slate shingles come in a variety of looks, while providing exceptional durability and low maintenance costs. A slate roof can last more than 100 years with little or no maintenance!
Typical slate shingle colors are grey, black and red. Like tile, slate carries the onus of extra weight and tends to be significantly more expensive than other roofing materials. However, GAF offers an exciting option for homeowners who love the look of slate but can’t afford the expense: TruSlate®. The TruSlate system features:
• Real hand-split quarried slate sourced from around the world
• Affordable luxury, often comparable to the cost of cheap-looking imitations
• Perfect for new construction or remodeling
• Improves your home’s resale value
On an old-fashioned slate roof, half of each slate is never seen, because it’s tucked under the piece above it. GAF has replaced this wasted slate with a high-tech waterproofing material. With this ingenious design, the TruSlate system can be installed on almost any roof.
