When this historic church in Norfolk, VA was in need of a new roof, designers selected an EcoStar product for its beauty, durability and longevity. Empire Slate 12″ Traditional tiles were installed in Saratoga Sunset.
An affordable and environmentally-friendly alternative to natural slate, EcoStar’s Empire Slate captures the traditional beauty of slate roof tiles while providing the durability and proven protection of a synthetic. Empire Slate is manufactured with up to 25% post-industrial recycled content to create a lightweight and environmentally responsible alternative to natural slate. Empire tiles are proven to protect against the most extreme elements such as rain, hail, snow, fire, extreme temperature change and the sun’s UV rays.
