Synthetic slate is durable

CertainTeed Corp. has introduced its Symphony™ synthetic slate, which is said to feature the texture and contour of quarried slate.

Symphony synthetic slate is available in CertainTeed's Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., markets. It is said to be lightweight and durable and is available in two color blends: colonial gray and capital blend. The synthetic slate reportedly can be installed without special tools and can be fastened by hand-nailing or with a pneumatic nail gun. Symphony synthetic slate is said to withstand foot traffic and cold conditions and reportedly will not crack, buckle or curl.
