The durability and beauty of slate roof is certainly attractive, but not the cost. This is why GAF’s TruSlate® Premium Roofing System is for those who agree. It’s the ultimate alternative to traditional slate roofing but a departure from the usual synthetic imitation. TruSlate comprises genuine, hand-split, quarried slate tiles reinforced with an innovative, waterproofing material. Its inventive design makes it within the reach of most homeowners.
As one of the very few GAF-certified roofing contractors in the region, CMS Roofing wants to shed light on the top benefits of TruSlate:
Being Friendly to the Pocket
The main claim to fame of TruSlate is its affordability. It lets you enjoy the advantages of authentic slate roofing and pay for the price of the typical plastic imitation. For just a fraction of the cost the traditionally installed slate, investing in this luxury wouldn’t break the bank.
Coming in a Bevy of Gorgeous Colors
Whatever your aesthetic residential roofing requirements, TruSlate gives you plenty of latitude in styling up your home. Available in three main hues: Onyx Black, Charcoal, and Autumn Dusk, you can round up your home with a roof that’d look stunning in all lighting.
Whether you want your slate not to fade or age with grace, each TruSlate variety is distinctively attractive in its own right.
Standing Up to UV Rays and Moisture
To complement the superior toughness of quarried slate, we’ll lay down a series of barriers to keep your wooden roof deck intact for decades. Deck Armor™ helps your roof breathe out excessive moisture and provides protection against wind-driven rain. Both WeatherWatch® and StormGuard® leak barriers safeguard your roof against leaks due to settling and intense weather. UnderBlock™ offers an extra sheet against detrimental ultraviolet radiation and moisture.
Preventing Attic Heat Buildup
For maximum energy efficiency, the TruSlate Ridge Vent helps keep your attic climate cool and prolong the life of your roof. Experienced roofers would tell that mitigating heat buildup effectively prevents mold growth and wood deck deterioration.
Promoting a Cohesive Look
Thanks to the ShingleMatch™ Premium Roof Accessory Paint, we can hide unsightly pipes sticking through your roof for visual harmony. Painting them with same slate color, these accessories wouldn’t be an eyesore.
Also, we use TruSlate Trim Slate to cover the hip and ridge areas and produce a better-looking finished look. With our Lay-Straight™ Alignment Tape, we can install straight, consistent rows of tiles. With the unique TruGrip™ Battens and Hangers, the strongest winds wouldn’t blow any of slate out of place.
