Are slate roofs heavy and expensive? Yes, a traditional slate roof adds a great deal of weight and expense to an installation, so it has not been an ideal choice for many home or business owners in the past.
However, the patented Genuine Roof Systems interlayment system eliminates the overlapping materials common in standard slate installations, ultimately reducing the weight by up to 40%. Our innovative system also eliminates the need for added hooks, battens, or rails that other lightweight systems employ. As an added benefit, the reduction of roof weight also lowers structural costs, contributing further to the system’s high value. You can now achieve the same sophisticated look showcased on palatial estates on any home due to our lightened system.
What does slate roofing look like?
