Niagara Slate™ image

Niagara Slate™ - Synthetic Slate Roofing

Bigger is better when it comes to EcoStar LLC's latest innovation: Niagara Slate. Manufactured with the same process used to create EcoStar LLC's roofing tiles that pioneered the composite slate and shake market over 20 years ago; this new profile provides the same durability and protection using a larger 14"x 22" or 12" x 22" slate.

This increased size is designed so one Niagara Slate tile covers one square foot of roof deck (14" tile only) and allows for greater exposure options (9" or 10"). In addition to maximum coverage of the roof deck, a higher profile, measuring 5/8" thick, was designed to create enhanced shadow lines for maximum aesthetic appeal.

Like its predecessors, Niagara Slate is manufactured using a proprietary compound incorporating post-industrial recycled materials to enable long-lasting durability while providing superior protection against extreme weather conditions. Available in 12 standard colors, and unlimited custom color options, Niagara Slate offers endless opportunity to showcase the beauty of natural slate at a fraction of the cost.
