Synthetic Slate Roof Replacement and Repair in Greater Washington

Slate is one of the most attractive roofing materials for homeowners, combining beauty, refinement and unsurpassed durability. However, the initial investment and weight of genuine slate makes it impractical for many situations. A sensible and cost-effective solution for this quandary is synthetic slate roofing.
Quick facts about synthetic slate roofing
  • Synthetic slate roof tiles are manufactured from plastics and rubber, which makes them considerably lighter than genuine slate, and generally more accessible to a broader market with lower installation costs.
  • Synthetic slate roofs offer the same aesthetics and sustainability of genuine slate, and it is available to homeowners in a wide selection of roofing types and colors to suit any architectural style.
Benefits of synthetic slate roofing

  • Durability: Synthetic slate shingles are manufactured with an exceedingly high impact-resistance factor, making them more durable in many ways to genuine slate. Synthetic slate is resistant to high winds, hail and fire. Also, mold and algae growth are inhibited by many synthetic slate materials, which helps protect roofing integrity and aesthetics.
  • Lighter: Synthetic slate materials weighs in at approximately 75% less than genuine slate. This lighter weight affords homeowners more design options for roof replacements and new home construction.

I am continually impressed by the products, quality, and craftsmanship of Exterior Medics. This is our second project with this company and they DO NOT DISAPPOINT. Further, we have SUCH peace of mind knowing that our new roof (2016) as well as our new windows (2020) contain a 50-year warranty. This far surpasses their competitors' offers. I am so in my happy place!

It was a pleasure to work with Exterior Medics on installing our new roof and gutters. They gained our trust by being professional, thorough, and friendly. They were responsive to our questions and concerns and provided good follow-up to make sure the job was done right. We highly recommend them!

Job started on time and was finished with daylight to spare. Clean up could have been better but in their defense it was cold out. The gutters were replaced a few days later. Finished work looks good.

Just can't get any better that Exterior Medics. They were committed to the project from the get-go and took the time to explain the process, set expectations and answer my questions. The work team was professional, respectful of my house and property, provided daily clean-up and reached out to ensure the project was running as planned. I recommend Exterior Medics without hesitation.
