SlateTec, Inc. has announced the launch of a new simple lightweight roof system using natural slate: the SlateTec system. The patented system layers highest-grade (S1) slate over a recyclable polymer interlayment to reduce roof weight, and slate pieces used, by approximately 40 percent while yielding a roof “made of natural slate and looking exactly like a traditional slate roof,” according to Mike McDonough, president of SlateTec. Homeowners, contractors and architects now have the option of quickly and easily replacing asphalt or wood shingles with long-lasting slate. The product is priced similar to imitation slates and to the few complicated lightweight slate methods presently available, yet will last twice as long: up to 100 years.
