DaVinci® Roofscapes, a division of Westlake Royal Building Products™, has introduced a new single-width composite slate roofing tile. Province™ Slate, a 12”wide tile with a fixed 8” exposure, evokes a historical nature with authentic natural slate appeal.

The tiles are modeled after actual slate and have a natural look that complements a variety of home styles. The Class A fire-rated and Class 4 impact-rated tile can also be used on commercial projects. The durable slate tiles resist severe weather, high winds, insects, algae and fungus growth.

“Province Slate is another slate tile in the growing DaVinci family of composite roofing products that offers timeless beauty, security and durability to a roof,” says Mark Pagel, General Manager at DaVinci Roofscapes in Lenexa, Kansas. “Province Slate tiles are made of virgin resins, ultraviolet and thermal stabilizers, along with a highly specialized fire retardant. The result is a roofing tile that is ideal for any climate. Whether used at a seaside location with constant salty air conditions or in the snowy mountains of Colorado, Province Slate is right at home.”

Each tile has rear side nail marking templates, an enhanced backside rib structure, and self-aligning edges for ease and speed of installation. “This is the cost-effective composite roofing product many people thought did not exist,” says Pagel. “Province Slate opens the door to people having traditional slate single-width exposure on a home at a price that is competitive with architectural asphalt and other high-end roofing options.

“In addition, the choice of composite roofing means homeowners get a lifetime of low maintenance roofing at a cost that fits within most budgets. They also get a Lifetime Limited Materials Warranty that can save both roofing headaches and potentially on a homeowner’s insurance policy.”

The new Province Slate tiles are available in six of the most popular colors requested by DaVinci customers: Slate Gray, Slate Black, Smokey Gray, Castle Gray, European and Brownstone.
