The Benefits of SlateTec


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 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.

Please call us anytime! Our design team can accommodate any custom or standard roofing project and help you choose from the

many options available to build the perfect roof for your building.

Homes Under Construction Can Save Time and Money by Using The SlateTec Lightweight Slate Roof System:

Even if your home is in the design/build phase, the SlateTec Lightweight Slate Roof System is still the ideal roof solution for you.

New construction homes can save time and money by eliminating the extra material, labor, and engineering that are typically required to

support the weight of a traditional slate roof. That not the case with a SlateTec Lightweight Slate Roof! 

If you are designing your dream house, and want to top it off with a beautiful natural slate roof,  you shouldn’t have to worry

about the additional roof weight and the hassle that comes along with it. 

Here are a few points to consider when deciding which roof

to use on your home:

A SlateTec Genuine Slate Roof weighs less than six pounds per square foot! So no additional structural engineering is required.

Our Lightweight Slate Roof System uses the only highest quality slate available, Vermont S1 Grade.

Our Slate Roofs are equal in form and function to that of traditional slate roof installation. We cut roof weight, not corners.

The SlateTec Patented Interlayment is a powerful leak barrier that’s weaved into every course of the slate, providing protection from

leaks even if a piece of slate is missing.

We offer all of the classic natural slate colors and color blends available on traditional installations as well as hand-picked custom

color blends, to match any style home.

Our Lightweight Slate Roof System is easy to install and requires no special training or certificates. You can use the roofer of your

choice or we can help you find one.

Don’t settle for anything but the best when it comes to your home. Our design team can accommodate any custom or standard

roofing project and help you choose from the many slate colors and textures to build the perfect roof for your home
