Symphony Slate - technology in tune with the natural surroundings

Proper Installation is Critical.
Symphony Slate’s contractor-friendly design and lighter weight makes it easy to install. It requires no special installation tools and can be fastened by hand-nailing or pneumatic nail gun, without cracking. It has excellent weathering qualities, withstands foot traffic and cold temperatures, and resists curling and buckling — unlike traditional slate that can crack under the weight of a misstep or shatter when temperatures dip too low.  In addition, the shingles are shipped in pre-blended pallets, so contractors won’t have to spend time sorting colors at the jobsite, and can begin installing the roof more quickly.


  • Minimum installation temperature:  15°F
  • Pre-blended 12" bundles and narrow width slates
  • Hip & ridge accessory products available
  • Superior slip resistant surface
  • Installation guides, pre-dimpled nail gun pocket, spacing notches
