Slate & Synthetic Slate

Slate can create a unique and luxurious roofing look.


Slate is very strong material and creates a unique and luxurious roofing look, but it is also very heavy, often requires additional structural support and can be costly to install and maintain. Slate composites boast the beautiful look of slate roofing, without the tremendous weight and cost. The knowledgeable team of roofing professionals at Advanced Exteriors has unparalleled experience with natural slate and slate composite roofing products and installation, and we will help guide you through the decision process – weighing the pros and cons for your specific project – every step of the way.

While repair of a natural slate roof requires the use of natural slate, many of our customers interested in the slate look for their new roof or new construction home opt for a slate composite roof. But just because we have an increasing number of customers looking for composite slate roofing doesn’t mean we have abandoned natural slate roofing as a viable option.The roofing professionals at Advanced Exteriors have decades of slate roofing experience, and we are confident you’ll find our expertise second to none.

When deciding what material is right for your roof, here are some facts to consider. Composite slate shingles are carefully engineered to provide the authentic look and durability of natural slate roofs at a fraction of the cost.

  • Composite slate shingles are considered a “green” building alternative, because the polymers can be recycled at the end of the roof’s usable life.
  • Composite slate shingles are manufactured with ultraviolet inhibitors, providing an extra layer of protection from sun damage.
  • Composite slate shingles are very safe (excellent wind and fire resistance) and are much easier to maintain (aren’t likely to crack or break).
  • Composite slate shingles weigh significantly less, meaning they cost less to transport and install. Additionally, synthetic slate does not require additional structural reinforcement along the roofline.
