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
