Does a SlateTec Slate Roof Cost Less Than a Traditional Slate Roof?

Feature Highlights1The answer is yes, and here is why:

  • The SlateTec slate roof system is a weight reduction system, so you use less slate; weighs less than six pounds per square foot
  • Re-roofing with SlateTec is an upgrade to a genuine slate roof without costly engineering and reinforcement construction
  • New construction: lower engineering and structure costs
  • The SlateTec system is far superior to any synthetic or faux that strives to duplicate a genuine slate roof due to a weight challenged structure

SlateTec provides a natural slate roof with the same timeless style, longevity, and options as a traditionally installed slate roof, simply at a lower weight. Integrating a signature polymer interlayment with premium Vermont S1 grade slate produces a genuine slate roof that weighs less than six pounds per square foot and adds an extra water barrier that traditional installations don’t offer.
