BRAVA Old World Slate - Slate Roofing Alternative

If you're looking for the incredible aesthetics of natural quarried slate roofing and want to avoid costly substructure modifications required to handle the extreme weight of slate tiles, Brava’s revolutionary composite slate tile is for you.

Product Profile

With a 1” profile, Brava’s Old World Slate polymer tile has the volume of traditional slate roof tiles with a fraction of the weight. This allows for less expensive shipping costs and ease of installation. Our Old World Slate shingles have the thickest synthetic slate roof profile available. The 1" thick profile of this product creates beautiful color exposure and an unsurpassed durability. Our composite slate roof tiles are available in any custom color or color combination.

Environmentally Friendly

Our synthetic slate shingles are made of recycled plastics (polymer) and other fully sustainable materials. Our eco-friendly composite slate tile is the ideal replication of slate roofing. Brava’s composite roofing product is an extremely attractive, durable, and the environmentally friendly alternative to concrete roof tile or slate roofing systems. Installing composite slate roof tiles is the best slate roofing alternative.


If you're tired of dealing with the costly maintenance and repairs required for your natural slate roof, our imitation slate roof tiles are your best alternative. Natural slate tile is fragile and requires lots of attention throughout the years. Chips or cracks can lead to costly repairs, and finding a color match for replacement slate shingles is next to impossible. Brava Old World Slate roofing shingles are Class 4 impact rated (the highest in the industry) and hail warrantied. Brava Old World Slate is also available in Class A or Class C fire rating.


Brava's synthetic slate roofing has solid tile accessories to make gable and labor-intensive valley installation a much more complete system while also providing a realistic appearance.
