Synthetic roofing products are the number one hail resistant shingle available. Most synthetic slates and shakes are class A fire rated. They are made from a polymer base material which can imitate slate and wood shake very well without the weight issues.
There are many styles to choose from, including varying thicknesses, colors and styles. Synthetic slate can be shuffled with different colors and sizes creating a unique roof for your home.
Most manufacturers give a 110 MPH wind rating along with limited lifetime manufacturer warranty. The wood shake profile varies even more between manufacturers.
Here in Texas it gets so hot that the slate profiles can start to bend and curl with age. Some companies have begun to produce their tiles with a curve to help minimize this effect over time. All synthetic roofing products fade in color just like any roof as it ages. Synthetic roofing is a great product that will protect your home for many years to come.
