Technical Data

Our engineered slate roofing is easy to install. Unlike natural slate, our shingles are light and don’t require additional framing for support. They’re practically indestructible. A contractor can walk on them all day long without damaging them. They don’t require special skills or tools. (We’ve designed recessed nail flanges right into the shingle to make installation simple.) The end result is a professional installation completed in less time. Which saves dollars for other projects you have planned for your project.
