Why Less Weight Matters in Lightweight Roofing Materials

A lot of homeowners and building owners love the look of natural slate, however, most roofs are not set up to hand the weight of natural slate.  So in order to solve that problem, many roofs are beefed up with trusses and more.

Here's why:
  • DaVinci Slate per square = 240+ lbs
  • Natural Slate per square = 1200+ lbs

In other words, DaVinci slate is less than 1/4th the weight of natural slate.

Because of this drastic difference in weight, you will also find that our synthetic slate cost is considerably less. 

The reason why less weight matters:
  • Less fuel needed to transport it
  • Less labor to haul it to the roof
  • Less expense in transporting it
  • Less material needed for your roof structure
