I don't know how long you have been "in" on these artificial slate products, but I have seen at least 15 of them come and go and fail in the meantime. The companies go out of business and the warranties that you admire are worthless. How many of them can you show me that are 60 to 125 years old? Those pictures are nice, but show them to me in about 30 or 40 years. You do realize that this is a slate forum don't you?

Synthetic slate will save you in the long run. Less structural support required, less maintenance, natural products don't come with warranties...the list goes on. Some synthetic slate is made from recycled materials, so you are saving the environment by reducing the massive costs associated with extracting natural slate.

Concerns pertaining to the quality of the product. I am interested in purchasing a home in Dallas, Texas that has the Maxi Shake roof. I am unfamiliar with the product and I am concerned that this type of roof may have quality issues of the nature that were experienced with the Hardi Slate roofs.
Any information would be most helpful.

I have a MAXI SHAKE roof that is 12 years old and must be replaced. Two roofing contractors have said the product, made in Mexico is defective.

Go with natural slate. It will last a century or two.

I am looking to replace my roof. It is a wood shake which is not replaceable in Southern Ca. Hardi slate, composite, was recommended. What problems have you experienced with this product?

Nothing beats natural slate.

What were the "quality issues that were experienced with the Hardi Slate roofs"? I am replacing a roof and considering Hardi Slate. Thank you.

We are looking for about 1500 to 2500 square feet of Hardi Slate in these colors - 65% Dark Gray, 20% Green and 15% Brown. The pieces are 8" wide by 16 to 18" long. Can anyone help us?
