Simulated Shake and Slate Roofing - Your Solution for Lightweight Tiles

Simulated Shake Roofing - Lightweight Shake RoofingOne of the things you have to take into consideration when you are looking at roofing materials is there weight per square. A roofing square actually equals 100 square feet. So when you find out the weight per square, keep in mind that it is a based on 100 square feet and not on one square foot.

There may be several reasons why you need to find lightweight roofing tiles - you might have trellises that cannot support the weight of the heavier materials. On average, products that weigh more than 600 lbs/square will require a structural investigation to make sure that the home or building that they are being put on can support the weight of the tiles.

Green Roof SystemsAll of our products are lightweight - so no matter which of our products you choose - they are lightweight roofing materials:
  • Single-Width Valoré Slate Tiles - 266-332 lbs/square
  • Multi-Width DaVinci Slate Tiles - 273-342 lbs/square
  • Bellaforté - 182 lbs/square
  • Single-Width Valoré Shake - 283-315 lbs/square
  • Multi-Width DaVinci Shake - 304-342 lbs/square
  • Fancy Shake - 267-356 lbs/square
Please note that the variations in the lbs/square on some of the products above is based on whether or not the product is laid straight or staggered and also the exposure of the product.

You'll want to check with your city or municipality to figure out whether or not your home or building will require structural investigation.
