SlateTec – providing advanced technology genuine slate roofs
A SlateTec slate roof can be installed on almost any re-roofing project and works great for new construction as well. Our patented slate roof system eliminates roughly 40% of each piece of slate that is normally hidden on a traditional slate roof application. Our signature interlayment replaces the covered slate which reduces the overall weight, so costly structural upgrades can be eliminated while still achieving the same aesthetics of a traditional installation. The savings from this weight reduction, labor, and shipping costs is the true value behind the SlateTec system.
When building a home, the engineering and structural costs for roof weight is dropped approximately 40%. The cost for the two component system is comparable to synthetics, high-end concrete tile, and other lightweight slate roof systems that strive to duplicate a traditional random width slate roof appearance.
The slate supplied with a SlateTec roof is the highest quality S-1 grade stone quarried in Vermont and is delivered directly to the end user. Our signature interlayment is a high quality product that has been time tested on telephone cables and in landfill liners across the country for over fifty years. The testing confirms that a SlateTec slate roof will perform and protect your roof for the same lifespan as a traditional slate roof.
