Types of Slate Roofs We Install
DaVinci Composite Synthetic Slate
DaVinci composite synthetic slate roofing is modeled after real slate to ensure a natural aesthetic and quality. Unlike natural slate, though, DaVinci tiles are engineered to resist the brunt of wind, fire, and hail. These lightweight and resilient tiles come in a variety of widths and colors to achieve your ideal slate roofing design. Composite slate is lighter, stronger and longer-lasting than its natural counterpart, so if you’re interested in a beautiful and low-maintenance roof, MHI Roofing can help!
