I've got 9 sq. myself, howbeit used. I had them tested after we tore them off and they are composed of 15% asbestos. Wish I had never saved them. The color composite they use is highly vulnerable to the UV rays from the sun. They would probably be better used for a wall rather than a roof (ie - siding a shed or out building)

Unfortunately, not too much. Supradur had to take the asbestos out of their fake slate in the late 80's, and Supradur II (their subsequent product) was horrible. It caused them to go bankrupt in the early 90's. There are very few Supradur roofs left. Although some brokers sell Supradur, I think most of them have all they need and more. You can try Renaissance, but it's worth very little if anyone is willing to buy it at all. By the time you factor in shipping, I think you'll probably wind up putting it in a landfill.

I was curious as to how much brand new slate would go for per Square or tile. I have 9 Square of gray Supra-Slate from Supradur (no longer in business). I have 90 unopened packages containing 22 pieces of slate (each package is 1/10th of a square). It is all still on the palette and has been stored in a garage. The tiles measure approximately 16" x 9 1/2" and have 4 nail holes in them. Any info would be appreciated.
