What’s Behind the Beauty is Genius

Single-Width Slate

DaVinci Single-Width Slate roofing tiles are constructed of a composite material made of pure virgin resins, UV and thermal stabilizers as well as a highly-specialized fire retardant. The result is a premium roofing tile that gives us the greatest degree of color control and consistency in the manufacturing process. And you end up with a product that endures beautifully in any climate. Natural slate tiles can’t compete.

  • 12″ tile width
  • 1/2″ tile thickness
  • Can be installed at 6”, 7”, 7-1/2”, and 8” exposure
  • Modeled from actual slate for natural, non-repeating beauty
  • Resistant to fading, rotting, cracking, and pests
  • Lifetime Limited Material Warranty
  • Tiles arrive at the job site bundled and pre-sorted for color, eliminating sorting and guesswork at the site

Advantages of DaVinci Slate

A Virtually Limitless Color Palette

Color Wheel

DaVinci composite slate roofing tiles are available in a full spectrum of authentic slate colors. Each slate blend is formulated from different slate tones creating a natural variance in color, enhancing the realistic appearance and blending beautifully with its surroundings. Nobody offers you more color options than DaVinci—your only limitation is your imagination. Whether you’re selecting a single color or creating a custom blend or color, we’ve got you covered in a way real slate can’t. See your color options come to life by using our color visualizer.

Cool Roof

Cool Roof colors for our Single-Width Slate roofing tiles are available in Brownstone, Castle Gray, and Slate Gray. These premium blends were designed to reflect sunlight and heat away from your home. Cool Roof colors meet the Title 24 requirements for California residents.
