What is Enviroslate?

Enviroslate is a composite roofing product that is designed to authentically replicate the look of natural slate roofing. Predominantly all of the materials (95%) used in Enviroslate are reclaimed materials. Enviroshake has developed a superior composite blend and formulation used to create the company’s signature roofing products. The proprietary formulation and manufacturing process results in a product that is has enhanced durability, longevity, and performance. Enviroslate is not susceptible to mold, mildew, fungus, rot or insect infestation. It is also hail resistant and can withstand severe weather conditions and temperature fluctuations and extremes. Enviroslate can be installed more efficiently than natural slate, and once installed is maintenance free. Enviroshake products will retain their physical properties and look for decades, and are even sold with a lifetime warranty that is and fully transferable within the first 50 years for residential projects, and a 50 year warranty for commercial projects.

The Enviroslate Profile

Enviroslate is available in four unique profiles that emulate natural slate. Every piece is 20” long, and 12” wide. Enviroslate is made with a flat-back design, so when cutting pieces there will be no exposed ribbing. Each piece weighs approximately 2 lbs. The weight of Enviroslate is more reflective of real slate than other plastic synthetic slate products on the market. Enviroslate is installed at a 9” exposure, and can be installed on roof slopes 2:12 and greater. All ridge caps are custom made for each project (available in 3/12 through 16/12 pitch). Enviroslate is available in 7 colours, Onyx black, Charcoal grey, Stone grey, Sage green [dark and light] and Plum purple [dark and light].

Don’t just take it from us! The brand new Enviroslate truly does look like natural slate. Here is what Certified Installer Charles Spelts of Bradford-Cameron Inc. has to say about his first Enviroslate job: “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.”

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
