Advantages of our slate

Engineered using the most advanced technology in material development and manufactured from a proprietary fire rated ACE Compound, Authentic Roof is the only synthetic roofing slate of its kind.

It's unique base – ACE Compound, is an extremely durable, impact resistant and heat resistant thermoplastic. This particular material is also used in a wide array of other applications ranging from roofing membranes to several automotive applications such as fascia panels and interior skins. All of these applications have one key element in common: they all require the highest level of UV protection and impact resistance available in a plastic. Hence our company mandate regarding quality products – only the best will suffice. Great consideration should be placed on the several significant benefits that Authentic Roof offers to its consumers:

Our Material

  • Authentic Roof’s uncontaminated ACE Compound base is meticulously blended with an unrivaled UV protection package and vital FR (flame retardant) additives ensuring that they are both locked in securely and thoroughly combined together.  This process is also critical in delivering a “color-through” product. The actual color of Authentic Roof slates goes all the way through the product, not just the surface – additionally contributing to its long life expectancy.
     

Superior Life Expectancy

  • Rigorously tested, approved and certified by internationally recognized laboratories in various countries, Authentic Roof is competitive with all high-end roofing materials and comes with a transferrable 50-year warranty upon purchase. However, all of our customers have taken great pride in knowing that they’ve replaced their roof, or put one on for the last time.
     

Ultra Violet Protection

  • With the growing concern of the sun’s harmful rays Authentic Roof has been tried and tested to stand up to this challenging task. Its composite base offers a 15000 hour direct Arizona sun exposure protection package. The unrivaled dual UV package embedded within our slates is among the best in the world.
     

Flame Resistant

  • Authentic Roof is the ultimate shield to protect any home or building; this is fortified by its "CLASS A" flame rating for the slates alone. No special underlayment is required. (UL790) UL and ULC tested, certified and LISTED. Our material production and slate production is on a follow-up program from Underwriters Laboratories and is inspected at random by UL inspectors for quality assurance.
     

Environmental Leadership

  • Not only is Authentic Roof considered a "green roofing product" being made from primarily very high quality recycled materials, but it is one of the few products available that is actually 100% recyclable itself. Any cosmetically damaged or unused material can be recycled again into new slates or products and thus, will not take up space in landfills. Authentic Roof has been a proponent of the environment since its birth; in fact, it is the one product that initiated the manufacturing and use of eco-friendly roofing materials in North America and around the world. Another World First.

    Being certified for the collection of drinking water in Australia and New Zealand may be of little concern to the rest of the world; but, this undoubtedly verifies - that there are absolutely “NO carcinogens or toxic chemicals in the Authentic Roof material that can leach out and contaminate the environment.

    Certified by Global-Mark Australia for AS/NZS 2049

    The LEED Credits Authentic Roof qualifies for are as follows: EA 1, EQ 7.2, MR 4.1, and MR 4.2. For more information, please Click here for a direct link to the building green site that lists LEED credits.
     

Light Weight

  • Truly a "Featherweight" advantage - The weight of Authentic Roof slates is quite similar to that of standard shingles. It is approximately 4 times lighter than its real slate counterpart. This particular feature adds to the inherent characteristic that Authentic Roof is much safer and much easier to install when compared to numerous other roofing systems. 
     

Impact Resistance

  • Authentic Roof is virtually indestructible. Even the strength of the elements are no match. Tried and tested, Authentic Roof offers the highest category impact testing available: Class 4 (UL 2218), as tested, certified and LISTED by UL & ULC. This again solidifies its perfect fit with any home or building, particularly in extreme weather areas. Whether its HAIL or even a HAMMER, it doesn't matter! 
 

Non-Conductive - Energy Saver

  • Authentic Roof’s unique compound base acts as an insulator and in no way attracts lightning or conducts electricity, thereby giving each customer the “shield-like” protection they demand while providing the means of energy-savings that we all seek.
