02 May Metal Roofing:Slate Look that is Beautiful and Durable
We are very excited about the recent introduction of the Slate Rock aluminum roofing series by our favorite metal roofing manufacturer, Classic Metal Roofing Systems. In recent years, several companies have tried to reproduce the beauty of natural slate roofing in metal authentically. But they have all fallen short. We think that Classic has really reached success with their new product and we’re looking forward to installing the first jobs of this product in North Carolina.
Finally, Slate Metal Roofing
The new Slate Rock metal roofing system was designed for homeowners who want the classic high-end beauty of slate roofing. Slate Rock utilizes the latest in metal roofing coatings to achieve unsurpassed beauty. The dimensional-appearing finish is a four-layer PVDF coating unmatched for performance.
Slate Rock is a system of interlocking aluminum panels with concealed fasteners. Permanently rust-free and wind-resistant, Slate Rock is longer lasting than natural slate roofing, and at a lower price than real slate. Additionally, the robust multi-layer coating system utilizes reflective pigments to help homeowners reduce their air conditioning costs.
According to Classic president Todd Miller, “The Slate Rock system is revolutionary by the way it uses the latest in technology to capture the sought-after look of slate roofing truly. This product can be used on high-end homes as well as on smaller homes. With so much of a home’s visible exterior being the roof, Slate Rock will enhance any home.”
Slate Rock is available in four colors; all developed to look like different shades of natural slate. The product carries a non-pro-rated Lifetime Limited Warranty which is transferable as a 40-year warranty for all future owners of the home during the warranty period. Made from quality, up to 99% recycled aluminum, the majority of which is post-consumer, finally allowing homeowners to make a roofing decision that closes the recycling loop. Additionally, Slate Rock provides an ideal surface for the installation of solar panels.
The low weight of aluminum roofing allows it to be installed over existing shingles in most cases. The installation process is completed by matching pre-formed trim pieces and flashings that continue the look of a slate roof.
