Synthetic Slate Shingles on the Coast in a Hurricane Prone Area

Coastal living involves such beautiful things in life, like the gentle sound of the sea, exciting salt-tinged air, beach-combing, and amazing sunsets. Unfortunately, for those who live in areas prone to hurricanes, it can also involve high winds, driving rain, and evacuations. Homes and businesses in these areas need some extra protection from the elements and our polymer roof products help provide the type of shield they need.

While some industrial roofing materials can also aid in protecting structures during hurricanes, they aren't always esthetically pleasing. However, there's no need to turn your house into an unsightly fortress when you can use our composite slate and shake to both help protect and beautify your home. High winds that would probably damage some types of asphalt shingles won't have as big of an affect on our tiles because they are rated to withstand winds of 110 miles per hour. As well, our Class 4 impact rating will also help protect the roof from flying debris that could potentially poke holes in less durable roofing materials.

Danny Lipford of the show, "Today's Homeowner" put our materials through a few of his own impact and fire tests. See how they stand up to everything from a blowtorch to a baseball bat in the video!
