An alternative to cedar and slate, composite (or synthetic) tiles and shingles are high-performance materials designed to resemble cedar shakes, slate, and clay barrel tiles. Made from recycled plastics, they are almost indistinguishable from their natural counterparts.
For example, the manufacturer DaVinci outperforms both natural slate and cedar shake with its composite construction, Class A Fire Rating, Class 4 Impact Rating, and a 110 mph Wind Rating.
The manufacturer Enviroshake offers features such as environmental sustainability, solar reflectivity, and wind/fire/impact-resistance.
Composite roofing provides superior engineering, long-lasting beauty, and durability.
