Why Slate Tec?


As with all slate roofs, longevity is the key word.  Slate roofs will last over 100 years so installing a slate Tec roof will be the last time you have to replace your roof in your life!

Now, not only is slate a long-lasting roof material, but it is absolutely beautiful.  Slate Tec takes advantage of slate's beauty and brings it a step further with one awesome difference: Vari-width Slates.  Changing the distance that each individual slate hangs down breaks up the straight rows that cut along asphalt roofs and gives your roof character and individuality.

Until recently, slate roofs, if they had to be installed on a roof that once had shingles, needed expensive and time-consuming structural improvements.  Slate Tec allows Leska to install a slate roof with a much lower pound per square foot ratio, allowing nearly any roof to accept a beautiful slate upgrade.

To solve the problem of roof weight, Slate Tec's engineers created a recyclable high-tech polymer interlayment.  This membrane not only allows for the single overlap construction as mentioned above, but it provides the homeowner a second barrier against the elements.  Occasionally, a slate may break, and in this case, without the recyclable high-tech polymer interlayment, you will, without a doubt, get a leak. However, with the recyclable high-tech polymer interlayment, this second line of defense could save you!
