Synthetic Slate Roofing

Slate is a popular roofing material because of its durability and rustic appearance. However, a genuine slate is hard to work with and costs a pretty penny. Additionally, slate roofing panel production uses a lot of energy.

Why Choose Synthetic Slate Shingles?

Synthetic slate roof shingles are a popular choice due to their low-cost and wide range of styles. They provide several benefits over traditional asphalt shingles and can perfectly match the style of virtually any home.

Synthetic slate shingles use several materials, including polymers, plastics, clay, cement, rubber, and steel. This combination of materials gives synthetic tiles unique properties that make them ideal for roofing installations.

Synthetic slate roofing tiles are a cost-effective alternative to natural slate because synthetic slate mimics the appearance and durability of genuine slate. Farha Roofing offers synthetic slate roofing installation in Wichita, Kansas City, Denver, Eads, and Durango. We have been serving the local communities for over a decade.

Installing Synthetic Slate Roofing

One of the best features of synthetic slate is how easy it is to install. Genuine slate is extremely heavy, so homeowners often have to pay extra to reinforce their roofs. Slate tiles are also hard to shape and require special heavy-duty nails to keep them in place.

The low weight of synthetic slate roofing tiles makes installation much more convenient. Contractors install them in the same manner as asphalt shingles, costing much less per square foot than genuine slate tiles.

Farha Roofing offers high-quality DaVinci-brand synthetic slate roofing tiles. DaVinci synthetic tiles feature a wide range of options and finishes, from hard-carved to natural rock.

How long does Synthetic Slate Roofing last?

Many manufacturers claim that synthetic slate tiles can last up to 50 or even 100 years. However, they have only been on the market for about 20-30 years. Their durable construction means they will last at least as long as other synthetic roofing materials while providing a natural stone appearance.

Most synthetic slate tiles also have Class 4 resistance certification, meaning they are highly resistant to impact and can withstand severe weather conditions. On the whole, synthetic slate tiles will last for a long time and will protect roof installations from damage.

How long does Synthetic Slate Roofing last?

Most manufacturers make Class A synthetic slate tiles, meaning they have a very high level of fire resistance. Class A tiles won’t smolder when they are exposed to fire, won’t create embers, and do not have any flammable chemicals.

If you cannot afford Class A synthetic slate roof tiles, you can opt for Class B or Class C tiles and install a fire-retardant layer underneath. Keep in mind that installing extra fire-resistant materials will increase the cost of your project.

How Sustainable is Synthetic Slate Roofing?

Synthetic slate tiles are more recyclable than other types of roofing materials. Most manufacturers use recycled products for the majority of manufacturing, which keeps materials like plastic, polymers, rubber, and minerals out of landfills. Most major synthetic tile brands make their products in the US, which reduces emissions and pollution from transportation and lengthy supply chains.

Synthetic slate tiles are also recyclable. Genuine slate, in contrast, is not sustainable. Slate is not renewable, and you cannot recycle old slate roofing systems. Slate removal and disposal are also very expensive.

Synthetic Slate Roofing Cost

Synthetic slate roofing cost depends on a handful of issues, including size, accents, finishes, and installation costs. The average price for synthetic slate roofing tiles can lie anywhere from $10 to $15 per square foot.

In comparison, a typical asphalt shingle costs anywhere between $3 to $5. Synthetic slate tiles are more expensive but have unique style options and are more durable than traditional asphalt shingles.
