Deciding on a Slate Roof
You’re in the market for a new roof, but you can’t decide between real slate and composite slate. We understand your dilemma.
A roof is not a product you purchase every year … or even every 10 years. So, when it comes time to determine what to put atop your home, we can help.
If you love the look of slate, but you’re worried about the cost and weight of natural slate, visit our DaVinci Slate Comparison Guide to get fast insights as to the differences between real slate roofs and synthetic slate roofing. This easy-to-view chart outlines the differences (and similarities) between the beauty, labor and performance of natural slate roof tiles versus imitation slate tiles.
And, if you’re concerned about the environment, check out our Sustainability & Environment website page before making a decision on your roofing materials.
