Traditional Slate vs TruSlate®
Slate has been used as a roofing material for centuries for its durability and beauty. Slate in the past has only been used by the elite, who can afford to utilize this natural resource. But the makers of TruSlate® found a way to make genuine slate affordable for every homeowner, as well as making it easy to install & repair!
How did they do it? The TruSlate® system eliminates the waist of traditionally installed slate roofs, because of its ingenious, patented design that reduces the cost of instillation. Those savings gets passed on to you!
