Royal (Dura) Shingles

Dura Slate roofing systems by Royal are a durable, economical alternative to real slate tile roofing. The shingles employ Royal’s Dura Impact Modifier Technology and a patented recycling process to produce a through-color polymer tile that’s lighter than stone. Available in five variegated colors, Dura tiles show a natural slate texture in a non-glossy finish.

While the shingles mimic the look of slate, they won’t crack or split from temperature extremes. Dimensional consistency and lighter weight make installation far simpler than it is for quarried slate tiles.
