    The TruSlate® Premium Roofing System from GAF can make your dream of owning a genuine slate roof a reality. Traditionally-installed slate roofing has typically been out-of-reach for most property owners, as the installation is often slow and expensive.  In addition, traditionally-installed slate can be heavy, requiring expensive structural modifications to be made to the roof system.   The ingenious design of the TruSlate® Premium System provides a faster, lightweight installation, allowing it to be installed on virtually any home!

    • TruSlate® Slate is the real deal:  Genuine, hand-split S1- Grade quarried slate from North America’s finest quarries. Not a synthetic imitation.
    • The TruSlate® Premium Roofing System is lightweight, yet the slates themselves are the same thickness and quality as traditionally installed slate.
    • The TruSlate® Premium Roofing System adds more slate where you can see it—and eliminates wasted slate where you can’t see it.
    • TruSlate® Slates won’t curl up and warp the way someplastic imitation slates can: Only genuine slate weathers gracefully over time.  In fact, a TruSlate® roof becomes even more beautiful as time goes by, adding charm to any house.
    • TruSlate® offers some of the most highly desired slate colors and textures: Installed for over a century on the finest properties across North America, these beautiful slates are now even more affordable!
    • Color Variation & Natural Weathering Note:  TruSlate® Slate is crafted from natural stone, so there may be variations in color between different slates or from one lot of slates to another.  The slate your receive may vary from the pictures shown on this website.  In addition, slate can fade or weather over time and each slate may fade or weather slightly differently, creating a natural mix of colors.  It is this variation in color, combined with natural weathering, that adds to natural slate’s beauty, character, and charm.  For more information about weathering of each TruSlate® color, please see the TruSlate® Brochure.
