Synthetic slate is a roofing material that many don’t consider, but should! Here are some amazing benefits to this often-overlooked material,  


This material is designed to replicate real slate, however, it is made of a combination of rubber, plastic, asphalt, cement, and steel.  Real slate is not recyclable or reusable at the end of its life and can end up in our landfills. Synthetic slate can be reused for a variety of uses. Here are a few:

  • Edging around a garden
  • Pond lining
  • Outdoor mural
  • Plant markers
  • Birdhouse


Natural slate is quite heavy and when placed on a roof, may need extra support built into the frame of the home. It can cost nearly 300 pounds per square, which is a 10ft x 10ft area. Synthetic slate is approximately half that weight which will be much easier on the frame of your home, but offer the gorgeous look of real slate.  

Long Lasting

Synthetic slate tiles are fire resistant, impact resistant, and can withstand extreme weather conditions such as severe winds, strong storms, and beating hail. Natural slate tiles may have a difficult time keeping up with the durability that their counterpart can withstand. ‘Due to the strength offered by synthetic, the life span is nearly 100 years. This roofing material will most likely outlive the home itself!
