SlateTec Inc. is the first company to offer a genuine slate roof that retains all of the best qualities of a traditional slate roof installation while adding modern day know-how to lower roof weight and more efficiently prevent leaks. At less than six pounds per square foot, a SlateTec Lightweight Slate Roof weighs roughly forty percent less than a traditional slate roof. That means the cost to re-engineer an existing cedar shake or asphalt roof home to support the extra weight of slate is completely eliminated–making SlateTec the perfect re-roof solution. This is accomplished by SlateTec Inc.’s patented interlayment technology which provides an additional level of water protection while lowering the weight at the same time. If a piece of slate were to break or fall out of place, the SlateTec interlayment system would simply shed water onto the course of slate below — preventing leaks and the resulting damage — until the slate can be properly replaced.
- SlateTec Inc. has created a Lightweight Slate Roof Application that not only looks identical to a traditional slate roof; it also functions equally in regards to life-span.
- Our high quality Vermont S1 Grade Roofing Slate comes with a 100 year manufacturer warranty directly from the quarry, and we offer a wide variety of natural colors and blends to perfectly match any style home.
- The installation process of a SlateTec Slate Roof is similar to a traditional slate installation in that we use the same time tested ‘nail-down’ technique that’s been used on slate roofs for centuries around the world.
- The key difference between a traditional slate roof and a SlateTec Lightweight Slate Roof is the weight savings.
- A SlateTec Lightweight Slate Roof weighs roughly 40% less than a traditional slate roof yet it retains all of the essential qualities that make slate the best possible option for any roof.
