Tile Roofing: Celadon ceramic slate
The Old House Web
Priced lower than natural slate and just slightly above synthetic slate offered by competitors, Celadon is guaranteed for 50 years not to chip, breakor fade. At 598 lbs. per square, the tiles are about a third the weight of natural slate, Ludowici says, and need no additional roof deck support.
The ceramic slates are available in a range of colors that replicate natural slate. Custom hip and ridge tiles, a gable rake accessory and half-slates arealso available.
