Q:

I'm shopping for a new roof and learning that there are a lot more choices for shingles these days. I've decided against using composite asphalt shingles. Natural slate and shake are out of the question for cost and safety reasons. I'm seriously considering synthetic slate or shake shingles and like the colors and textures I've seen, but I'd sure appreciate your opinion.
