Lightweight Slate Roof

The SlateTec lightweight slate roof system is an innovative approach to installing a genuine slate roof. The secret to the patented SlateTec design is that we employ a very rugged interlayment on the roof deck that allows a 40% reduction in slate tile overlap. Therefore, a SlateTec roof uses far less slate than in a traditional installation. Along with the reduction in roof weight, the system uses 35-40% less slate. The reduction of roof weight (less than six pounds per square foot) also lowers structural costs, contributing further to the system’s high value.

The SlateTec system features genuine S-1 rated Greenstone Slate® in all the colors of Vermont slate.
