Alternative Materials

Alternative Roofing Materials for Kansas City Homes

Durable roofing tiles curated by hand.

Man-made roofing tiles are a good option for someone who wants the look of traditional roofing materials such as slate, wood shakes, or tile, but want a specific performance, durability or appearance not available from traditional materials.

Alternative roofing materials include concrete, clay, polymer, stone-coated metal, fiber, or a combination of fiberglass, resin, slate dust or Pearlite. Man-made roofing can be more expensive than some natural roofing alternatives, but the advantage is a wide selection of shapes, textures and colors, as well as fire resistance.

Manufactured slate is one of the most popular man-made roofing products, and is produced using a variety of different materials. While there are benefits to natural slate roofing, manufactured slate is easier to work with, lighter, and doesn’t require some of the additional structural reinforcement of natural slate roofs.

Fiber Cement Roofing Materials

One of the most popular man-made slates is made from fiber cement with a waterproof coating. The advantage is lower cost than natural slate, but the drawback is a shorter life cycle at approximately 40 years. Resin-based slate, on the other hand, can last as long as 60 years, although they are often as expensive – if not more – than natural stone.

Stone-Coated Steel Roofing Materials

Bordner offers highly-durable, attractive and long-lasting stone-coated steel roofing materials manufactured by DECRA. DECRA’s stone-coated steel products achieve the look of tile, wood shakes or traditional shingles, while being fire safe, freeze/thaw resistant, and wind resistant up to 120 miles per hour.

Polymer Roofing Materials

Bordner installs synthetic polymer roofing materials manufactured by DaVinci Roofscapes. These attractive products match the appearance of natural slate and shake shingles, come in a variety of standard colors and custom colors, and feature a 50-year limited warranty. DaVinci roofs installed by Bordner are fire resistant, impact resistant, and windproof up to 110 miles per hour.

Bordner is a very professional company from the sales staff & office staff to the install crews. They retain very knowledgeable and skilled tradesmen to do the work and they showed up when they said they would.

The work was done right the first time and the warranty is just an added bonus. Thanks to all the people who worked on our projects!

We did a complete roof preventive maintenance make over — Bordner was great to work with. No salespeople – they are all professionals in their roles. We always received full disclosures, updates and notifications. We felt very well informed from the whole team. The work was done on-schedule and the clean up was very thorough — not a scrape left behind for us to clean up.

I contracted with Bordner to install a new roof on a home I am selling. I was very pleased with the workmanship and time it took them to complete the job (it only took them about four and a half hours).

They stand behind their work, their promises & are one of the most widely respected companies in the Kansas City area. I highly recommend Bordner Home Improvement.
