Where Beauty and Durability Meet

Few roofing materials can offer the rich and rugged beauty of premium slate.That’s why we created a slate roof made from rubber!

You get the aesthetic appeal of authentic slate but with the lightness of rubber, unprecedented durability, and comparative longevity – all at a significantly lower cost. All Euroshield® rubber roofs are manufactured from 95% recycled materials, with the highest quality virgin crumb rubber derived from recycled tires.

So, with Vermont Slate, you not only have a roof that will last a lifetime with the aesthetic appeal of real slate but you also save hundreds of tires from ending up in our landfills.


Why Choose Vermont Slate
for Your Home or Business?

Any home or business owner needs to balance aesthetics with practicalities when selecting and installing a new roof.


Beyond beauty, there are a number of common factors impacting roof lifespan:

  1. Sun Damage – Ultraviolet radiation
  2. Sun Damage – Thermal expansion
  3. High Winds
  4. Hail Storms
  5. Rapid Changes in Temperature

These factors are related and work in tandem to break down most roofing materials.

A Vermont Slate roof helps you get the balance between beauty and protection right. You get the rich texture, edge detailing and fine-grain features of real slate but your home is also protected from the risks posed by the elements:

  • Hailstone protection with unmatched Class 4 UL2218 Impact resistance
  • A 50-year warranty, which includes resistance to hail* (see warranty for details)
  • Wind testing to 160 mph for two hours of continuous exposure at PRI Labs in Tampa, Florida
  • Increased amounts of carbon black with the ability to absorb otherwise damaging ultraviolet rays

Vermont Slate panels are light, easy, and cost-effective to install and roofs are virtually maintenance-free, saving you time and money. The unbeatable warranty provides peace of mind that, once you have installed your roof, your investment will be protected for a lifetime.

Benefits of a Vermont Slate HP Roof

  • Independently tested in the US and Canada

    All of our roofing products are tested at independent laboratories recognized by the Canadian Construction Materials Council (CCMC), the ICC (USA), and listed by QAI.

  • Super durable

    Vulcanized rubber is known for its shock-absorbing qualities. A Vermont Slate roof is made largely from recycled rubber tires: super-durable but lighter than slate.

  • Hail proof

    A Vermont Slate roof offers the highest official hail-proof rating in the industry: Class 4 UL2218.

  • Unbeatable warranty

    You receive a generous non-prorated lifetime warranty that protects against damage from hailstones up to two inches in diameter for 50 years.

  • Insurance benefits

    Your roof should qualify for the maximum insurance discount available for hail impact from insurers, which will help offset some of the installation costs.

  • Environmentally friendly

    A Vermont Slate roof is made almost entirely from recycled rubber tires, with each roof saving hundreds of tires from landfills.

  • Affordable quality

    Vermont Slate roofs are less expensive to install than slate and represent outstanding value when you also consider how long they last.

  • Value-adding beauty

    Because a Vermont Slate roof closely emulates the authentic appearance of slate, the curb appeal it brings to your home also adds value to it.

    The panels themselves and any scrap material from the roofing installation can be recycled

Vermont Slate Vs. Vermont Slate HP

To the naked eye, there is almost no difference between a Vermont Slate roof and a Vermont Slate HP roof. From the visible front face of the roof, the two types are virtually identical.

The key differences lie in:

  • The interior design and construction of the panels
  • The warrantied level of protection from hail they provide, and
  • The price – they have similar looks and general performance but Vermont Slate comes in at a lower price point than Vermont Slate HP

With the Vermont Slate roof, the chambers on the backside of the panels are hollowed out more than with the HP version, making each panel around 1.2lbs lighter.

If you are looking for a 50-year warranty that protects you against any size hail for the first 20 years of the roof’s life, choose the Vermont Slate HP.

The extra-robust design of the panels goes well beyond industry standards on hail proof roofs and is specifically designed to withstand impact from any size hail.

Vermont Slate roofs come with a 50-year warranty against a hail of up to two inches in diameter, which is still one of the leading warranties in the industry.

We are able to offer this high level of performance and industry-leading protection because of the proprietary composition of materials used to manufacture our roofing products at Euroshield®.
