Slate is growing in popularity because of its durability, aesthetic appeal, and easy maintenance requirements. However, slate is not a viable option for most homes, unless they have been specifically designed to withstand the weight of a slate roof. This is why Cenvar Roofing chooses to utilize faux slate. Faux slate is a synthetic material designed to look and function like slate, but weighs a fraction of the weight of real slate. While this material is an option for almost any home, when you schedule your free estimate, our team will assess your home and determine if slate is an option for you.
