Synthetic slate shingles are a modern improvement on a construction classic.
Made from combinations of plastic and rubber, synthetic slate is designed to mirror the beauty
and uniqueness of authentic slate. Synthetic slate is considered a "green" building alternative, and are more durable than authentic slate,
as they contain advanced ultraviolet inhibitors to reduce wear from the sun.
Synthetic slate shingles are lighter than all asphalt shingles, and most are certified by Underwriters Laboratories for Class 4 impact resistance.
If you are considering a new roof that will last, the life expectancy of tile is approximately twice than that of asphalt shingles.
Tiles are more durable and can withstand a lot more strain, especially higher winds.
However, not all homes are made for tile shingles in mind. Check with us to see if your home is a good match for this product.
