Roofing Force Installs Natural, Concrete and Composite Slate Roofing 

 

Stone Slate Style

Slate roofing has a classic high-end and luxurious look. Unfortunately, natural stone slate is very heavy and is expensive to produce and install. In most cases, roofs that use real slate must be reinforced to manage the additional weight. Natural slate is also susceptible to deterioration through freeze/thaw cycles and can be destroyed by large hail stones. One alternative to natural slate is Concrete Slate manufactured by Boral. Another, and even better alternative is Composite Slate manufactured by DaVinci Roofscapes and Boral under the Inspire brand name. Roofing Force is the best installer of natural, concrete and composite slate products in Kansas and Missouri. Give us a call at (913) 270-5667 and our trained staff will be happy to provide you with more information and a free estimate.

Composite / Synthetic Slate

Composite Roofing is a man-made synthetic polymer product that is casted and made to look like authentic natural materials. Composite Slate offers the real slate look without the headaches that come with installing and maintaining real stone slate. These composite products provide the beauty, texture and other benefits of natural products, but are offered at a faction of the price and weight of real slate. DaVinci and Inspire Composite Slate Products are modeled from actual slate for natural, non-repeating beauty. These state-of-the art products have a Class A Fire Rating, Class 4 Impact Rating and a 110 MPH Wind Rating, are energy efficient, and are designed to last 50+ years. Composite slate is made of pure virgin resins and includes UV and thermal stabilizers as well as a highly-specialized fire retardants. These beautiful Slate Composite products come in a variety of earth tone colors, sizes and patterns.

Concrete Slate

Roofing Force installs concrete and lightweight concrete shake products manufactured by Boral. These products have an excellent lifespan and provide great energy efficiencies and good wind fire and ice dam resistances.  Like natural slate, these products can be heavy and may require reinforced framing. Concrete may not be as good as composite slate in high hail impact areas or be as good as other products in an earthquake.  Also, great caution needs to be made to prevent breakage and slippage when walked on. Although less expensive than natural slate, these concrete products do not look as realistic as natural or composite slate.
