Is It a Rubber Roof or Are Those Plastic Roofing Materials?

Some people say that our fake shake and slate shingle tiles look more real than actual stone and wood. Lightweight Roofing SystemsThat's a great thing to hear because our designers and engineers strive to come up with that highly authentic look. But at the end of the day, our tiles are made with something entirely different than quarried stone or hand split cedar. Even though some folks just about refuse to believe that our shake isn't crafted from old growth cedar forests, we can guarantee that they are crafted with a polymer resin that was specifically engineered to be used on roofs. 

That means that our products are designed to withstand winds up to 110 miles per hour and have achieved Class A fire and Class 4 impact ratings. It also means that their light weight reduces their carbon footprint and that they are technically made with a type of plastic. As odd as that might sound, since we use composite resins to create our durable, beautiful tiles, yes, you could also call them "plastic". It's always good to clarify that because several people are under the impression that our roofing materials are made with some kind of rubber. Because there was a generation of roofing tiles that were made from recycled tires, the idea still exists in the roofing market that any faux slate roof is a rubber one.  However, you can rest assured that our tiles are fabricated with an advanced polymer resin that is backed by a 50 year warranty.
