Plastic roofing shingles and tiles are formed with a polymer based or composite material. Plastic or synthetic roofing products are manufactured from blends of new and recycled plastic materials. For this purpose a proprietary molding process is used. The tiles created by this method look better and stronger as compared to natural material. Plastic roofing products are generally lighter than clay, tile, slate and cement roofing.
The synthetic roofing tiles are available in synthetic slate tiles, synthetic cedar shake, classic Spanish/Mission tiles and provincial flat tiles. These all are available in variety of popular colors.
Synthetic roofing is great for the environment as it can be fully recycled even after it's 50 year lifespan. Synthetic materials require minimal maintenance compared to other structural exterior products like your common sloped roof Asphalt Shingles.
