Engineered Slate

At Ply Gem, we’ve spent years researching, developing and testing synthetic slate materials. Our objectives were clear from the start – To develop a material that is sustainable, extremely durable, fire-resistant, impact-resistant, fade-resistant, lightweight and easy to install. The result is a new category of building material made of 100% recycled resins.

Easily coordinate exterior palettes from our four pre-blended color families, including Brownstone, Charcoal, Pewter and Sagebrush, or create a custom blend from our 12 authentic hues and 3 accent colors. Try our Slate Selector Visualizer Tool to see your custom blend.

Simplified Installation & "Living Hidge"

Unlike natural slate, our Engineered Slate is lightweight and doesn’t require additional framing for support. No special skills or tools are required, and our shingles withstand typical worksite foot traffic without damage to the material for a quick and simple installation. 

Our easy-to-install “living hinge” Hip & Ridge shingles use a flexible joint that conforms to any angle, ensuring a perfect fit and a professional finish every time. The secret to the living hinge is its durable butyl tape, which allows the shingles to lay flat like natural slate shingles to create a more authentic than one-piece ridge caps.
