Durable, Reliable Inspire Slate

Crafted at a manufacturing facility in Michigan, Inspire Slate tiles are made of a polypropylene base of product. The roofing tiles are compression-molded to replicate natural slate. The mold provides their quarter-inch profile giving the appearance of weather-worn slate.

The beautiful appearance of the thin profile of Inspire Slate doesn’t mean it’s not hard working. Lightweight yet durable, Inspire Slate is Class 4 impact rated and 110 mph wind uplift rated. A Dual-Axis InFlex Cambered profile helps Inspire Slate tiles hold their own against strong winds. The slightly curved shape along both the X and Y axes offers superior uplift protection in both directions. The result is a dependable roofing tile that can stand up to Mother Nature.

In addition, durable Inspire Slate tiles resist chipping and cracking. They also resist mold and algae growth, pests, impact, salt air and fire.

Backed by a 50-year Limited Lifetime Warranty, the tiles are designed for easy installation at a 6-inch to 7.5-inch exposure.

Inspire Slate is available in 20 colors that can be mixed and matched to suit any exterior.
