Synthetic Slate Roofing

Consider genuine and synthetic slate when making a choice for your roofing plans.

Genuine slate roofing can be a good choice for home roofing. It is a natural material that is rigid and strong, and depending on where it was quarried, the quality, color and longevity will vary. It is fireproof, strong enough to resist a hail storm,

and is aesthetically appealing. Its natural beauty will enhance the

beauty and value of your home, the most common colors being tan, black,

gray, red, purple, or green. The colors vary according to the various

minerals found in it.

Along with its long durability and low maintenance, genuine slate roofing also:

  • Does not stain
  • Does not require a sealant
  • Resists chipping and cracking
  • Comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and patterns
  • Offers warmth and elegance
