GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, is proud to announce its new TruSlate color line—featuring the Americana Collection, which includes five Vermont slates, and the International Collection, which offers three international slates. All slates in the lineup are ASTM C406-S1 rated—the highest rating for quarried roofing slates.
The Vermont-sourced Americana Collection includes slates that have been used for over 100 years on some of the most prestigious properties and institutions throughout North America. They are known for their performance, quality control, reputation, and unique colors. The line includes Meadow Green, Charcoal, Autumn Dusk, Antique Purple, and Rustic Red. The International Collection colors are Greystone, Mystic Grey, and Onyx Black.
Whether you’re looking for a classic slate look or a truly unique roof that is the talk of your community, The TruSlate Premium Roofing System offers a rich and diverse color palette of S1-grade slates to help satisfy every property owner’s personal taste and to complement their home’s design and exterior color scheme.
Property owners can select one TruSlate color for their entire roof or can mix and match colors to create a truly unique-looking roof. The choice is ultimately based on personal preference and design objective.
