Project Details

Residence in Lincoln, NE

When selecting a roof for this home in Nebraska, the homeowner sought an affordable, yet beautiful alternative to real slate. Empire Niagara Slate was selected in Freeport Federal to provide long-lasting durability, superior protection against extreme weather conditions and 50 years of warranty coverage

Empire Niagara Slate is a natural-looking, 5/8” thick, synthetic slate roofing tile produced in 12” and 14” widths. This added size allows each Empire Niagara Slate 14” tile to cover one square foot of roof deck at the 10” exposure (100 tile/square) while maintaining a minimum 2” of headlap throughout. An additional 9” exposure option allows for the creation of unique looks using staggered or random width offset installations.
