McKinney Roofing: Article About GAF TruSlate
Slate has been used in home exteriors for centuries, and it is often regarded as the ultimate material to use for roofing. However, slate tiles can be prohibitively expensive for some people, and not all homes are sturdy enough to support the weight of this material. With GAF TruSlate, none of these things are a problem, and certified McKinney roofing installers like FairClaims Roofing have the skills to quickly and easily give you the slate roof you want.
GAF TruSlate is installed in a slightly different way than other roofing systems. Roofers first put in a hanger system made from stainless steel that holds the weight that the roof puts on the building. The hanger system incorporates a waterproof backing that will protect the roof deck. GAF has succeeded in making TruSlate significantly lighter than traditional slate tiles by reducing the tile length and replacing the unseen section of the tile with waterproofing material. Essentially, the part of the roof that people see is real slate, and the part that is hidden helps to protect your home from water damage.
After putting in the hanger system, roofers apply roof deck protection and a leak barrier. After that, they install the top row of field slate tiles and the trim tiles that go along with them in addition to the ridge vent.

Roofers then attach the hangers and battens and insert the field slates and UV and moisture barrier. Everything is then trimmed out with stainless steel or copper trim and flashing.
While GAF TruSlate may sound like many of the other roofing products on the market, there are a number of things that make it stand out from the rest. The slate used to make most of the roof colors is quarried domestically, and the slate will not warp or curl. These roofing systems are guaranteed to withstand winds up to 130 miles per hour, and they have the appearance and coloration of real slate. In fact, their natural color aging will add charm and grace to any home they are installed in.
In addition, people can be sure that they will never have to worry about their roof as GAF TruSlate comes with a lifetime warranty. On top of that, FairClaims Roofing offers customers a 25-year guarantee on their workmanship. With reasonable prices and the peace of mind that it provides, GAF TruSlate is an excellent choice for both reroofing and new constructions.
