What are the amazing benefits of synthetic slate roofing? 


Synthetic slate roofing offers the beauty of a natural slate roof, but at a fraction of the cost. In the Pittsburgh area, slate roofing can cost up to $200 per square foot, so synthetic is an affordable alternative. This material is made from rubber and plastic but is designed and constructed to mimic the unique slate.

Style Variety

DaVinci offers the beauty of natural slate in three different tile options. Single-width tiles reduce material and speed installation times without compromising style. Province is tiles that replicate traditional slate with stunning accuracy. Bellaforte offers the look of slate at a fraction of the cost and weight. DaVinci tiles also offer differing widths from 6” up to 12” wide. Colors range from natural browns to soft grays to stunning black. Each home is only limited by imagination! 


Many of the materials that make-up synthetic slate roofing are recycled. These tiles are incredibly durable and can last up to 50 years. They are created from virgin resins, UV and thermal stabilizers, and highly-specialized fire retardants. They are backed by Lifetime Limited Materials Warranty.


Natural slate can become brittle, fragile, and break. Synthetic slate is made to last for decades and resists impact, cracking, and chipping. 

Hold Up Against Weather

Our DaVinci tiles are rated Class 4 for impact, which is the highest rating that can be achieved. This means these tiles won’t smolder when exposed to fire, won’t create embers, and do not have any flammable chemicals. These tiles can withstand winds up to 110 mph as well. 


Slate tiles require the home to be reinforced and strengthened to hold up to the extra weight. In comparison, synthetic slate tiles are lightweight and can be installed on almost any roof. During installation, synthetic tiles can be field-cut with a utility knife and nailed into place with standard roofing nails and a pneumatic nail gun. Authentic slate requires precision cutting and nailing of heavy material that can chip and break easily.
