Purpose & Use

A 4-way interlocking design and hidden fasteners make North Ridge Slate a great choice for roofs as low as 3:12. As with most painted metal shingles, True Nature is designed for installation on solid deck applications.

North Ridge Slate is most often chosen for residential applications but also functions at a high level for light commercial applications as well.

A high tensile steel core allows North Ridge to easily handle the high winds in Florida.
