Slate and tile are two of the most beautiful and durable roofing materials used in Oklahoma. For centuries, slate has been the roofing material of choice for the world’s greatest buildings. In fact, some slate roofs have lasted for literally hundreds of years, enduring all of the ravages that Mother Nature could throw at them.
The TruSlate™ roof system from GAF can make your dream of owning a genuine slate roof on your Oklahoma home a reality. The TruSlate™ system features:
1. Real hand-split quarried slate – (not a synthetic imitation) 2. Slate is an affordable luxury – (often comparable to the cost of the cheap-looking imitations) 3. Slate is perfect for new construction or remodeling – (because it typically eliminates the expensive structural modifications that old-fashioned slate requires) 4. Slate improves your home’s resale value – (and may even help you to sell it more quickly)

A tile roof is one of the most sound investments you can make when purchasing a home or re-roofing your current Oklahoma residence. Tile roofing is growing in some geographic areas due to its many architectural and color choices available, its energy efficiency, durability in cold and high wind climates, and its limited maintenance needs.
Tiles provide the longest track record of performance compared to other roofing materials such as asphalt shingles, especially in Oklahoma’s harsh climate. Modern engineering designs provide a natural water shedding and ventilation feature, allowing tiles to be the primary roof covering in warm and cold climates (even reducing ice damming in cold areas). The higher weight and strength allows tile to meet the anticipated loads of today’s design requirements for all climates.
Clay and concrete tile roofs are one of the most cost-effective choices due to their long lifespan—50 to 100 years or more. Both concrete and clay tile outlast other roofing materials, with manufacturers offering warranties from 50 years to the life of the structure.
All roofing systems require some maintenance, and certain climates and regions have special issues to address regardless of the type of roofing system. Under normal conditions, tile roofs require minimal maintenance. With tile, maintenance is restricted to gutters, protrusion flashings, and venting. With other roofing systems, maintenance may include coating, painting, cleaning, and/or sealing the majority of the roof surface.
