“The coupling of these two concepts benefits both homeowners and project managers with improved waterproofing, decreased weight requirement and the product security of a 100 year slate. These should be recognized as the top benefits of the system, but are often under appreciated by the true natural beauty of the system-homeowners simply love the look of their SlateTec roof.” – Michael McDonough, President of SlateTec
This is indicated by our many satisfied clients.
“Thank you for coming out to our house as you said you would. The project is still in progress, thanks to some unexpected storms and the need for more copper fabrication. [The installer] is treating our roof like a museum-quality mosaic and laying it out and installing the slate very meticulously. They are working on the front where we can finally see the product without climbing a ladder. I am not sure what adjective would be most appropriate-stunning, gorgeous, and spectacular! It has transformed our home. We have had numerous inquiries from neighbors.” – Mary M. (Homeowner), Los Angeles, CA
