Enviroslate vs. Slate

Outperform nature with the durability and weather resistance only an engineered product can offer.

Aesthetics: Enviroslate is designed to authentically match the appeal of natural slate
  • Enviroslate profiles are designed based on 3D images of real slate tiles, ensuring the texture, thickness, sculpted edges, and size of our tiles are all true to nature
  • Enviroslate is available in various colours to emulate the tones of natural slate roofs. Enviroslate will weather naturally, and—as with slate—there may be variations in the shading and thickness of the tiles, lending the product a realistic appearance on the roof
Value: Enviroslate comes with a lifetime warranty
  • Enviroshake’s limited lifetime warranty is further complemented with full transferability, adding value to future home sales
Maintenance & durability: One of the safest, most durable roofing products available
  • Enviroshake products are mold-, mildew-, and insect-resistant and will not rot, crack, or peel, eliminating maintenance costs
  • All Enviroshake products are fire-retardant, and unconditional Class A ASTM E108 fire-rated material is now available
  • Due to Enviroshake earning the highest impact certification level available—LEVEL IV UL 2218—you won’t need to worry about damage from falling tree limbs, hail, wind, or even walking on your Enviroshake roof
  • Enviroshake has solved the freeze–thaw cycle problems associated with slate. Weatherometer results, under 5× magnification, revealed no delaminating, cracking, erosion, or chalking to affect the performance of the shake
  • Enviroshake products exhibited superior performance during Miami–Dade testing for wind speeds up to 180 MPH (290 km/h)
  • Tiles are produced using a composite material reinforced with fibres
  • Products feature best-in-class UV inhibitor technology
More efficient installation
  • Enviroslate is lightweight and 1/3 the weight of natural slate, so reinforcement is not required
  • Installs with standard nails and screws rather than labour-intensive slate hooks
  • Can be installed on re-roofing projects
  • Installs with less waste than natural slate
Enviroshake products are created using a unique environmentally-friendly composite material
  • 95% of the content of the Enviroshake formula is derived from reprocessed post-industrial polymers, elastomers, and fibres
  • The runoff water from Enviroshake products is potable and non-toxic

The Enviroslate looks so authentic it’s scary. It looks just like the stuff I just took off. It’s turning heads and people are stopping by and asking questions. - Charles Spelts, Bradford-Cameron Inc.

We received the samples you sent and love the product! Tomorrow we are meeting with our builder and developer in hope of having the enviro slate approved by the HOA. It’s the best roofing product we’ve seen for the style we want. In fact, we currently live in a 1926 Tudor with a slate roof and my husband and I wished we had know about your product when we replaced our garage roof. – Susan Graham
