Alternative Roofing Material Advantages

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

DECRA’s stone-coated steel products achieve the look of tile, wood shakes or traditional shingles, while being Class A fire resistant, freeze/thaw resistant, and wind resistant up to 120 miles per hour.
