CertainTeed's Highland Slate has the look, texture and tone of natural slate with a dark shadow line to accentuate its appeal from the curb. Each tab is individually colored by state of the art Precision Color technology to provide a rich, deep, hue and its four-across tab is the ideal design to deliver color, contrast, and perfection when installed.

Wind, rain, snow, ice – this slate-like shingle performs at its best when the weather is at its worst. Highland Slate is rated where the winds howl – 110 mph – and it carries a full wind-resistance warranty.

The weave, pattern and fleck of natural slate is in the essence of the character that Highland Slate brings to your roof. With six premium color blends, Highland Slate is a smooth finish to rugged protection.

Highland Slate is also offered in 4 colors in a Class 4 Impact Resistant version for added protection in areas prone to severe weather conditions.
