Long Grove, Illinois has some of the most beautiful homes in the Chicagoland Area. Slate roofing is a more popular choice for this region and A.B. Edward is happy to serve all of our clients in the Long Grove area!
Slate is the most beautiful and durable roofing material known to man. For centuries, it’s 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. And, oh yes, slate roofs are heavy—and expensive—putting them out of the reach of most property owners. Until Now.
The TruSlate® System from GAF can make your dream of owning a genuine slate roof a reality. The TruSlate® System features:
The TruSlate® Americana Slate Collection features five traditional colors from America’s most famous New England quarries, which are known worldwide for their proven products and excellent quality control. These domestically quarried slates have been installed for over a century on the finest properties across North America. And now, by incorporating them into the TruSlate® System, we’ve made them an affordable option for just about everyone.
Proven Quality: These slates are classified Grade S1— the highest slate-quality grade in the industry — thanks to their long track record of both beauty and performance.
Genuine slate roofing has been used around the world for centuries. The TruSlate® International Slate Collection brings you the best combination of quality, beauty, and affordability in slate roofing. The TruSlate® International Slate Collection features the same quality as our Americana Slate Collection. Each slate is classified Grade S1— the highest slate-quality grade in the industry—so you can be assured of long-lasting performance from your new TruSlate® roof.
Choose from three of the most popular—and beautiful—colors used traditionally for slate roofing. Or, mix and match to suit your individual color scheme. But perhaps the best part of the International Slate Collection is its affordability. Our master slate sleuths have searched the world over for the very best quality slates at the very best prices—and we’re passing the savings along to you. When your neighbors see your beautiful new slate roof, you can smile knowing just how affordable it really was!
You can select a single TruSlate® color for your entire roof, or you can mix and match multiple colors to create a truly one-of-a-kind roof — the choice is yours. Start by looking through the photographs on this website. They include houses with some of the most popular blends. Your TruSlate® Certified SlateCrafter™ Specialist can also provide you with miniature slate samples to experiment with—so you can try your own color combinations in the comfort of your home. Whatever you decide, you can be confident that your TruSlate® roof will be beautiful, dependable, and most important, affordable.
Please remember that slate is a completely natural material. As a result, there can be a fairly significant color variation in individual slates or from one lot of slates to another. So the slate you receive will vary from the pictures shown on this website. In addition to natural variation, exposure to weather causes all slate to change slightly in color and in composition over time. The degree of color change varies with different slates. It is this variation in color, combined with natural weathering, that adds to slate’s beauty, character, and charm.
